This is a photo of our pond this morning.
In the 7 years since we've lived here, we have never seen it so high.
The dock is nearly totally under water, and the tree directly behind it is usually on the shore.
It started raining Saturday morning and rained hard for most of the day.
Sunday we had more rain.
And there is more on it's way for this afternoon.
So what do you do when you are itching to be outside working in the gardens, but instead are stuck in the house?
Meatball sandwiches, that's what!
I made homemade meatballs, then baked them on a sheet of foil in the oven till done.
No greasy stove to clean up!
Put meatballs in a pot with a jar of whatever spaghetti sauce you have on hand.
I think mine was Prego.
I added a bit of minced garlic to the sauce, and simmered for about an hour on low.
Just enough to thicken the sauce and tenderize the meatballs.
Split open a chunk of Italian or French bread.
I tore out a bunch of the bread...who needs all those carbs...
and put 4 meatballs with sauce on each chunk.
Sprinkle with a bit of mozzarella cheese, and wrap in foil.
Bake for just 5-10 minutes, or till cheese is melted.
Now THAT'S amore!
