1 pound ground beef
¼ cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
½ tablespoon salt
½ tablespoon pepper
10-12 slices mozzarella cheese
3 tablespoons melted butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons parmesan, grated
1. Preheat oven to 350°F / 180˚C.
2. In a medium bowl, mix the ground beef, bread crumbs, parsley, egg, salt, and pepper.
3. Pinch off a ball of the mixture, roll between your hands to make ping-pong ball-sized meatballs.
4. Cook the meatballs over medium heat, turning to brown each side. Remove from heat and drain on a paper towel.
5. Slice the baguette into thirds or fourths (each baguette piece should be roughly the same length of two meatballs).
6. Hollow out the insides of the baguette pieces with a knife.
7. Lay two slices of mozzarella on top of each other with a 1-inch overlap. Place two meatballs on the overlapping region, then fold the mozzarella tightly around the meatballs.
8. Push the rolled meatballs and cheese into a baguette piece.
9. Slice the stuffed baguette pieces into 1-inch slices, then place them tightly side-by-side on a baking sheet lined with foil.
10. In a small bowl, mix together ingredients for garlic butter.
11. Brush the garlic butter evenly over the baguette slices, making sure some drips in between the slices.
12. Wrap the foil over the re-assembled baguette and bake for 15–20 minutes, until cheese is melted and the top is starting to brown.
13. Remove the foil and serve with marinara.
How do you take care of yourself? Of your body? Of your mind? Of your soul?
I workout. I practice yoga. I hike. I kayak. I read. I engage in challenging conversations. I eat good food. I drink great coffee. I splurge on amazing wine. &
I take a break from social media for a few days every couple of weeks.
Even though so much of our lives/livelihoods depend on being active, engaged, and present on social media, I challenge you for the rest of this long weekend to ditch the devices. Take a well deserved, much needed pause from the virtual world. Put down the phones. Get off the computer. Sign out of facebook, instagram, twitter. Get outside. See friends. Be with friends - be present with friends. Think about the amazing things in your life that are not on the web, but that are right in front of you. Take the next day or two for you and you only. Reset and recharge for the coming weeks and adventures.
This is my send off for the next couple of days and my challenge to you. I may be on - may not. I may engage - I may not (most likely not). Stay off as much as possible - challenge yourself. Go enjoy your life.
