Not keeping this new recipe - pork and fennel meatballs!

It feels like winter has almost returned. Cold weather, a biting wind and for some, rain.We will be having soup for lunch for the next few days, hopefully by then, spring will reappear and we can have lighter meals.

The reading of this recipe gave us hope it would be lovely. Whilst I enjoyed making it, we didn't enjoy it. The meatballs were bone dry, DB hated the garlic element even though I cut the amount in half. Both of us felt there was no need for the florence fennel. Luckily, I had an over ripe avocade to use as a dipping sauce:

On a different note, after four abortive attempts to worm Ruby, we have finally gotten something else into her and hope it will stay there. All the last occasions, she has been very sick after all of them:(

  1. Have to say they don't look ever so appealing!

    1. They should have been browner but would still have been dry methinks.

  3. It's so disappointing when something you've cooked isn't enjoyable. It feels like a waste of calories to eat it for me. The fennel would have made them a non starter at my house!

    1. We were hard pushed to eat it but we’re hungry. Neither of us is keen on Florence fennel but were willing to try.
