http://wvfrugal-wvsaver.blogspot.com/2012/05/matzo-ball-soup.html a couple of weeks ago, and kept it in the back of my mind. I love matzo balls, and this recipe with lemon zest as well as ginger sounded fantastic. Well, let me tell you they were delicious and they are all gone...Instead of the chicken I made vegetable broth. For the vegetable broth I use vegetable bits, scraps, and leftover which I keep in the freezer in a bag. I adapted the recipe for te matzo balls a tiny bit by using Earth Balance instead of the chicken fat, and I used one tablepoons instead of two. Here is the link to the recipe again http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/matzo-ball-soup-recipe/index.html
As a side we had bread and today - this is a first - Mia Rose and I added seasame and poppy seeds. Now why did I not think of that sooner?! So, so good :). Here is the link to the quick no-knead bread http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/08/dining/081mrex.html?_r=1
I call this dinner success in our little house in Portland!
