Or Kofta or approximately one million names that describe the ground beef dishes that are prevalent in Greek, Mediterranean, Middle-Eastern, and North African cooking. Seriously. Those peeps have it GOING ON with ground beef. Sometimes on sticks, sometimes not. I saw some food show that said the word kebab doesn’t have to involve a stick, and I was all YES because the idea of molding ground meat around a stick and cooking it and hoping it didn’t fall off OR cooking ground meat and sticking a stick in later both sounded ridiculously annoying.
Because you don’t eat the stick, so it’s a waste of my damn time.
So here we have an “easy,” read: fusion that probably is nothing authentic from any of the above-mentioned locations, version of kebabs. Ground meat seasoned with tons of stuff, molded to essentially make little meatloaves and roasted until browned and sexy.
Side note: You could totally use lamb for these if you wanted to.
For serving, we have dinner or appetizer options, and why not? As dinner, couscous, yogurt, and raw veg are lovely with these, as an app you could make actual meatballs instead of the kebab shape, and you COULD DEFINITELY TOTALLY SHOULD stuff this in a pita with shredded for lunch. So basically we have a delicious way to prepare ground beef that you can then eat 7 times a day in different applications.
Let’s roll with it.
Note that I didn’t say necessary, or life easier or better, just happy.
I think that’s kind of key when you’re dealing with pregnancy hormones and depression and mood swings. Just happiness. There’s a lot to be excited about, and a lot to look forward to, but of course that is coupled with anxiety and worry and gross stuff. #vaginalmucous
Here are some things that I’ve found to be useful! And….some things that are not so much.
Last Saturday marked 3 weeks since the day Jay broke his leg, had surgery, got a rod and 3 screws, and effectively stole my pregnancy thunder.
Just kidding. He’s doing GREAT, and I feel like I’m raising a 34-year old every time he hits a new milestone.
