Drunken Meatballs #SundaySupper

First I wanted to say that no, I haven’t all ready fallen off the wagon with my meat-free challenge, this dish was cooked and shot during the holidays. So far we have gone 2 weeks meat-free and while we have been craving some of our favourite meat dishes we have loved the meals I have come up with during this time and I am looking forward to sharing more of them with you.

Today Sunday Supper is celebrating it’s 1 year birthday. It has actually been 7 months since I was invited to join this amazing, supportive group of bloggers. It is amazing how close you can draw to people having never met them in person. In these 7 months I have enjoyed getting to know each and everyone of the Sunday Supper bloggers lives and more their amazing dishes. I have already enjoyed so many of their dishes at home and many more are on my must try list. To celebrate this occasion we have all decided to pick one of each others dishes that we have made over this past year and share it.

The second I saw Connie’s, from The Food Army Wife’s, Drunken Moose Meatballs I knew I had to try it. Sadly I don’t have any access to moose meat but these were still amazing with beef. Hands down these were the best meatballs I have made. We served them at our appetizer night during Christmas and everyone wanted the recipe. But they were also amazing served as a main course with mashed potatoes and green beans. Yes I made them twice in one week, but seriously these were good. Don’t forget to go and check out the other amazing recipes that Connie shares and enjoy the delicious flash back recipes that the Sunday Supper group is serving up today.

I love Sunday Supper and I am so excited to celebrate its 1 year birthday and look forward to seeing what another year will bring to this group. The thing to love about this group is the fact that everyone believes in the simple idea that we need to focus more on coming together and sitting down to a meal. I believe walking away from such a simple concept is one of the broken aspects of the western culture. It not only invites unhealthy eating and spending habits but it prevents us from connecting with each other. So turn off your phones, computers and pads and spend some quality time with people you love.
