not Italian meatballs

I don't have a written recipe for meatballs, but here is my closest estimate:

2 eggs, beaten
1/2 pound ground beef
3/4 cup rolled oats
salt and pepper to taste (haha! I made these just the right amount of salty by luck. Maybe 1 tsp.?)
1 to 2 Tb. parsley
Mix everything together and roll into little balls. Use more eggs for more oats, and fewer eggs for fewer oats. Fry in a skillet on medium heat for about twenty minutes, turning as necessary. Serve over rice.
    1 or two zucchini or summer squash, sliced thin
    salt and pepper to taste
    2 or 3 Tb. butter (or olive oil)

    Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced zucchini and fry for about 15 minutes or until zucchini is tender and browned.

    Yeah, I think that's the first recipe I've shared! So simple... I usually don't take pictures of my food, and Jonathan usually cooks for me. I'll post again when I cook again!

    Public or Private??

    I noticed when I changed the background that it took all of the contributor's names off, which made me wonder if everyone wanted this blog private still or if you would like it public so your friends and family can access it if they wanted- now that you can't click on the names of the contributors (for those worried about that).

    Anyway, if anyone has any thoughts let me know.
