Italian Meatball Subs

Monday, January 23, 2012
Lucas requested Italian Meatball Subs for his birthday dinner. We had never made these before, so I had to scour the internet for the perfect recipe. Found it! This recipe made enough meatballs for six meals--that's right, six! I made a full batch and froze about half of it for later meals. We will definitely be doing this again!

 The recipe is from Mel's Kitchen Cafe. I didn't make any changes, so just follow the link if you want to try it! We did add salami, pepperoni, and provolone cheese slices for some bonus Italian flair, but that's optional...
 I also made Lucas a cheesecake. This was my first time ever making a cheesecake--Lucas assures me it was delicious. I have tried and tried to like cheesecake, but just can't get over the fact that it tastes like cream cheese (which I hate), so I took his word for it. List of foods I also won't eat: sour cream, mayonnaise, ranch dressing. And mushrooms. And olives. (That's all I can think of...)
The cheesecake is also from Mel's Kitchen Cafe. Great recipes there!


  1. looks amazing!!

  2. The subs look....out of control good. Like, I could grab one through the comptuer screen and eat it as fast as my jaws will allow. OH MY GOSH so good.

    and the are crazy, CRAZY for not liking cheesecake. That one looks like it could be the best one ever. So why don't you go ahead and send one my way for my birthday???? March 11th. Please and thank you.

    1. I have TRIED to like cheesecake-for realz. Even the fancy chocolate ones still taste like cream cheese to me. Blech. But, if I could figure out how to mail a cheesecake, I would for sure send it your way. That way I wouldn't have to look at it. Gross.

  3. I'm glad I have a list of foods you don't like. Now I know what not to make when we have you guys over for dinner = )
