Be the meatball.
So I know I've gushed about how amazing the Leschi market is and how amazing their butchers are. Lamb sausage, landjager, smoked turkey, etc. They also do a few prepared items that are very delicious. They do a mean meatloaf that is juicy and tasty. They also make organic angus beef meatballs. These meatballs melt in your mouth and will make you swear off vegetables. I could live off these beautiful spheres of meat.
So the first night cooked them off and made kefthethes. I roasted them in the oven with tomatoes, thyme, and lemon. After they're done, I topped them off with some feta cheese and kalamata olives and served them with grilled pita.
The next day for lunch we had grilled lamb sausage and meatball sandwiches with caramelized peppers and onions. I wanted to eat like ten of them but I'm on a diet so I only ate one huge meaty sandwich. I tell you what, it seems like the butchers at this fine establishment can do no wrong.
