Mozzarella Meatball Yellow Submarine

Mozzarella Meatball Subs

So, as you may be able to tell, I'm not as good with the camera as my better half. Colleen is up at her family's tonight, but before I can join her I have to go to work tomorrow morning. When you've been together for a while, you always get a little nervous about sleeping by yourself. I'm curious to see if I sleep better or worse tonight...

Cloudy with a Chance of Cheese-Filled Meatballs

Cheese-Filled Meatball Recipe

Can you see the cheese oozing out? Mmm... yes.
We've been meaning to post this meatball recipe for a while now, but life just seems to get in the way. Trust me though, as meatballs go, these are easily the best. They take maybe half-an-hour to make, and we ate them for at least a week - there's just no getting tired of cheese-filled meatballs. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is an animated movie that came out a few years ago, and I have to admit, we never saw it. I couldn't resist the reference though, because I loved the children's book when I was a little kid. If you can get your hands on a copy, you should read it to your kids, especially while they're eating these meatballs. Either way, on to the meatball recipe!

Cilantro Limelight Chicken Couscous

Do you need avocado? No... But it helps.

Cilantro Lime Chicken Couscous

Mmm, cilantro lime chicken couscous, you so good to me. As far as boneless chicken breast recipes go, this one is pretty cool. It uses a chicken glaze instead of the more traditional chicken marinade and it makes the chicken really flavorful. I should come clean and tell you that we took a lot of this recipe from another blog, which is here. We added a few tricks of our own though, so bear with us. Limelight, by the way, is a sweet old Charlie Chaplin movie. Yet another celebrity who would have loved our awesome recipes. So, here's what you need to make your own cilantro lime chicken couscous. Listen to how fancy that sounds and imagine yourself introducing it at a dinner party. Just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?

This is what you get.

Chicken Shish Kabobs

I know not everyone has a grill, but this is what we were hungry for. Don't despair! We'll have something good for you non-grill-owners soon.

Prep Time: ~20 min
You have to marinate the chicken first, which can be anywhere between 1.5 hours to overnight. We went with overnight.

Cook Time: ~30 min
It depends on how hot the grill is. It's better to check that your chicken isn't still pink inside.
