It’s no secret, my eating habits are largely dictated by the weather and these meatballs are certainly no exception. Last week, I found myself in my cozy kitchen seeking shelter from a spring slop-storm and immediately scrapped the “oh, I’ll just make a nice healthy salad for dinner” plan I’d originally had and made a big pile of meatballs for dinner instead.
And I’ve got to say, these meatballs were worth suffering through the bout of spring slush to experience. They’re tender and fragrant, spiced with coriander and fennel, that have been simmered in a simple tomato sauce. They’re speckled with black olives, spiked with fresh mint, and just the thing to put on your plate on a rainy night.
