the best part of my day

Now the bad news:

I couldn’t find my CTA Chicago Plus Card (to ride the bus and el system), the can opener, or socks.

I started to make the meatballs but my internet went down and I had not copied the recipe. I sort of remembered it (turns out I forgot half the ingredients). I thought I had grabbed the can of crushed tomatoes and searched for the can opener for 10 min. I found the opener but realized the can was diced tomatoes with jalapenos. So I skipped the part of the recipe that involved baking for 2 hrs with tomato sauce.

I ended up with a much simpler meatball served with Parmesan shavings. Once I ate one of the meatballs, I felt much better. Maybe I was hungry after looking for all those things but they made my day.
