I love getting comments on my posts. I mean, don't we all? One of the reasons I love this so much is because then I discover new blogs with incredible recipes. One of these new blogs I recently discovered is Baking-Haven. Abeer left a comment on my Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters post and I clicked on over to her blog. She has some great recipes, and I intend to go through her archives!
But the thing that caught my eye right away was the Vietnamese Chicken Meatballs recipe. We all love meatballs around here and a new recipe is always welcome. And as luck would have it, I had pretty much all the ingredients in my refrigerator. So I made these fabulous little chunks of chicken with just a few minor variations. I used all parsley as I didn't have mint and I don't like cilantro, and I used already ground chicken instead of grounding my own. No food-processor, you see. The meatballs were fantastic! I was a bit unsure of the sugar coating at first but it really helped caramelize the meatballs and it gave them just a tad of sweetness. All in all, a success, all thanks to Abeer and a nice comment on my blog. Doesn't it just make you want to click on over to some new blogs you've never read? Go on, you might just find something to spice up your weekly menu. And don't forget to visit Abeer's blog!
