I’m home with sick kiddos and have time to make dinner before noon (I try and do this as much as possible – I’m usually too tired to cook something awesome by 4:30/5).

I’m going to use my breadmaker for the baguettes: allrecipes.comfrench-baguettes

And this recipe I’m going to try for the meatballs:

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1.5 cups bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp crushed garlic
  • 3 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste 

Shape mix into meatball sized balls, bake @350 for ~22 mins. Place meatballs inside sliced  & lightly toasted baguette and top with tomato sauce and shredded  mozarella cheese and a sprinkle of parm.
