Even though it’s Spring it’s still kind of on-again, off-again cold here in Michigan. Yuck! But this weekend it was SUPER nice out. It rained toward the back end of the week but by Saturday it was nice enough that the kids could play outside and today is supposed to be even better. So let’s start off Mitten Movie Night with a meal combo that hits the spot no matter the weather, soup & grilled cheese.
Mitten Movie Night was moved this week from Friday when it usually is to tonight. We saved it because it’s a big TV night in our house. It’s the The Walking Dead season finale. Are you a fan? What are your thought about tonight’s episode? Eeeeks! I found last season kind of bland but this season has certainly made up for it minus the first episode. To go along with this gooey grilled cheese and yummy soup we are drinking some Guinness Golden Ale. Now enough about zombies and on to the food!
This soup is so easy! The thing that I love most about vegetable soups is that you can mix them up and then make them creamy with a little thing called a ‘immersion blender’. I recently used it to make an amazing Asparagus Soup for another Sunday Supper. I was trying to recreate a favorite of mine and it turned out perfect!
This soup is just a 4 step process: 1) Chop up the vegetables. 2) Mix these together in 2 Tbs oil. 3) Place on a baking sheet then roast them in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. 4) Once they are roasted add to a large stockpot with minced garlic, puree, chicken/vegetable stock and sugar. Set to low/medium heat while you make up the grilled cheese.
For the grilled cheese you could use any kind of bread. This sandwich is made with English Muffin Bread that Little A and I made. He loves to help me in the kitchen so I am always looking for things to bake because it’s something that I would like to get better at as well. Mix the mayo, cheese and pimento in a bowl. Slice and spread butter on the bread. Add the pimento mixture in between bread then cook as with any good grilled cheese-3 minutes, flip, then 3 more minutes until the middle is completely melted. This sandwich is a perfect for dipping.
After your grilled cheese is nice and toast-y and the soup is nice and roast-y your ready. And here you are….

You know….I love carbs. I L-O-V-E them. Bread! Pasta! YUM! But I honestly don’t love them as much as I love zucchini. Oh, zucchini! Such a diverse veggie whether I fry it, put it in some muffins or making zoodles like these there are so many ways to make it delicious. How about adding one of my families favorites to it? Yes! So now we have a new recipe to add to our dinner routine, Porcupine Meatballs and Zoodles.
It’s funny to think that this was one of my very first recipes that I put on my blog. Looking back almost 8 months in I have realized how far I’ve come with my photos so I’m going through and giving them a fresher look. And this one needed it….badly! While the pictures were bad I will give myself a little credit in the fact that I had basically 0.2% experience in photography. Knew nothing about food styling (still working on that). Didn’t have a clue about blogging. I just knew that I wanted to share my food, family and what I enjoy. So I jumped in and here I am. Learning more every day about photography, writing and sharing. Really hoping that it will continue to grow from here. Ok, enough about me-on to the recipe that got this all started only with better pictures.
First, let’s start off with the meatballs. You can use any beef flavor rice you like or even shake it up with different flavors but I always stick to the beef flavored as I find it give the best taste. Cook the rice according to package directions then……and this is *Important*…let it cool! Not only could you burn your hands when mixing the meatballs together it could end up cooking the eggs. Once it’s cooled add it to your turkey, and egg. Toast the bread and crush up into the meat mixture. Form into meatballs and put onto greased baking sheet.
At this time preheat the oven to 350 degree. Prepare your ‘zoodles’ using a spirilizer. Chop onions, garlic, green peppers. Add all of it into a bowl then top with olive oil. Put onto another baking sheet then put both the meatballs and the zoodles now go into the oven for 35 minutes.
In the last 5 minutes of the meatballs and zoodles cooking heat up the spaghetti sauce. Assemble this beautiful ‘paasta’ take all the vegetables and zoodles, top with meatballs then finally pour sauce over the top of your meatballs. Sprinkle with Parmesan and here you are….
