Whew! I survived November! I thought October was busy, but November really kept me on my toes. And I didn’t even host the Thanksgiving feast in our family! Thanks to POM and our fun experiments with pomegranates, my family and I had a fun November. And as part of Spice Foodie’s Your Best Recipe Roundup, I am featuring my favorite recipe for November: Lamb Meatballs with Tomato-Pomegranate Sauce.
I made these for my POM Party and served it as one of five appetizers. I love lamb and the gamey flavor doesn’t bother me. But these meatballs had a mild lamb flavor and the sweet-&-sour-pomegranate-spiked-tomato-sauce was lip-smacking good! All it was missing was some nice crusty bread to mop up the sauce. Mmmmm…. You could also serve this with pasta, too.
Some of my friends who don’t eat lamb really fell in love with this dish. They were surprised that they liked lamb. Our perceptions on foods and our likes and dislikes are always changing and evolving. Just because you had a bad experience with one type of food doesn’t mean you won’t like it in a different form. It’s a great lesson for ourselves to be more adventurous with our food, but also for our kids.
Now, all I have to do is to make it through December….
