Go Me! {Sunday Snapshot}

 really don't like to a matter a fact, I hate the kitchen.  Of course out of necessity, I am forced to prepare meals, I am just not creative, nor do I enjoy it-at-all!  Well, the other day, whilst surfing the net  working, I came across a recipe from Curtis Stone, who not only is a great chef, but very easy on they eyes.  I figured I would give it a whirl.  After perusing the recipe, I discovered that I had NONE of the ingredients.  Like I said, I am not a cooker, just a heater upper.  I am not a microwave cooker, I mean I do cook, just plain, boring, usually flavorless meals.  I envy those who can cook.  I am in awe over the meals they create-I am usually just not inspired to cook them myself.  Well let me just tell ya'll, it was YUMMY!  Here is some pictures of my masterpiece.  I highly recommend it.  Keep in mind, it does take 2.5 hours to make, but well worth the time investment.

Starting the process....Fresh plum tomatoes, shallots, garlic and olive oil and a fresh bay leaf

Simmering away....added dry white wine, fresh thyme, salt and pepper

While the sauce was cooking away, I prepared chicken meatballs.  2 lbs ground chicken, egg, panko bread crumbs, Dijon mustard, paprika, parsley, basil and fresh garlic

The finished product...served with some penne pasta-delicious!

But 2.5 hours to make?!? Wow, for someone who doesn't like to cook that is VERY impressive :)

Mmmmm, looks great. I love to cook, but these days, anything that takes 2.5 hours? My hat is off to you, girl!

Thanks for stopping by my first SS - I hope to make it a regular . . .I need to be better at catching the moments like I did that night.

Yummy! Not much of cook either, but I think I'd be able to get my clan to give it a try.
