I've been so busy lately and also just returned from a two week vacation, hence my absence, but I returned with a yearning for cooking and baking so I'm sure you will start seeing a lot more frequent posts here on this ol' cooking blog of mine.
Tonight's dinner is one of those comfort meals, it just makes us go "yep, we're definitely home".

½ lb ground pork
¾ cup breadcrumbs
¼ cup milk
1 large egg
1 small onion, chopped
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp pepper
3 Tbs flour
¾ cup water
1 cup half and half cream
1 tsp beef bouillon
½ tsp salt
parsley for garnish.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In large bowl, mix beef, pork, breadcrumbs, milk, egg, onion, ½ teaspoon salt, nutmeg and pepper. Shape mixture into 1″ balls.
