meatball subs

although i love the occasional lunch at ci'ci's or chic-fil a, i am pretty much a 3 homemade meal a day woman. not to say that some lunches, dinners or even breakfast's don't consist of Kraft mac-n-cheese(with frozen peas to make me feel like a decent mom) for my almost 3 year old, but for the most part i "do okay".

my husband is a full time touring musician. so when he is home on breaks our schedule's get a little screwy...but in a good way. 2 nights ago he requested meatball subs. it's one of his mom's staples that he enjoys. it's nothing i would EVER cook when he was not home.

he and i collaborated on the meat balls. he did the dirty work and i cooked 'em up with a quick tomato basil marinara.

we served them in whole wheat sub rolls and were topped with freshly grated parmesan cheese and mozzerella. then under the broiler.

the husband enjoyed them. i did somewhat. i wish i would have eaten the meatballs and sauce plain. they were delish! my son got them with macaroni pasta. (the sub would have been a bit much for his little mouth to take on).

we decided on seasoned fries for the side. i'm not a HUGE french fry fan. my son won't even touch them, thank goodness, but if i do make them(twice a year) they are fried, fried, fried. Mmmm. they were amazing! i did use peanut oil if that makes it any better. ha~ha

...and oh, they were store brand fries. i didn't make them. Sshh.
