Spicy Poken or Spicy Chicpo Meatballs

I knew the name would get your attention. Poken? Chicpo? Meatballs...you're probably thinking chick peas or something weird but no. I made these delicious meatballs with ground pork and ground chicken, hence the name. To these deliciously moist meatballs I added a sauce, honestly you could do without it. It was good but it made them too spicy for me and without the sauce they are delicious all on their own. You could serve these with the rice like I did or over pasta with the sauce or as my son suggested on a hoagie roll with the sauce and smothered in cheese. I was planning on doing that with the leftovers but someone ate them before I had a chance. 

Spicy Poken/Chicpo Meatballs
1 lb ground pork
1 lb ground chicken
1/2 cup crushed friend jalapenos
1/2 cup ground flatbread crackers
1 egg beated
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp white ground pepper
Combine all ingredients in a food processor, form into balls, saute in a tad of oil until nice and brown, cover with a sauce or eat plain. These are flavor packed and really do not need the sauce.

March FOTW

These are not mine, I saw it on Facebook with no original author. I thought they were cute and so I'm sharing.
Food for thought:
You never see anyone clean the pool at the gym.
Parking in the driveway.
Driving on the parkway.
If makeup is a beauty enhancer, why is it called concealer?

Odd food combinations: (heard on the radio)
BBQ sauce and rice
Applesauce, cinnamon and rice
PBJ sandwich with ham and cheese on top
Vinegar on cold fish (my daddy used to do it)
Tuna from a can with mayo, pickles, chopped egg, mushrooms, peppers and garlic
Dipping Oreo's in water (EWWW)
PB, Peeps and chocolate chips on a roll toasted
Poptart with a cheese slice in the middle and another poptart on top. (my oldest did this)

My son Jesse has a friend who delivers pizza. Guy delivers a pizza to a home. Girl is a stripper. Joke with the guys was "was it a pepperoni pizza? or a hard salami?" OMGosh guys really?!?!

Text  between myself and a co-worker:
Watching Triple D with my son, Guy is at a diner and some of the menu items...maybe because it was late at night or maybe because I had been drinking a tad but we were cracking up. Some of the items include: The Juicy Lucy, The Nookie, The Juicy Nookie and the BangCock! OMGosh
Just so you know, they were all different version of burgers.

Sheldon to Howard: 
Howard: What would help you?
Sheldon: A mind boosting caffeine induced suppository. 

Gift cards, I love them. I had 2 left from Christmas and used them a few weeks ago. It was fun to go shopping and buy stuff for me. I purchased a new toaster oven, haven't had one in about 5 years and then 2 new books. I love to read but haven't done that lately.

Bagogi - #CIC March 2017

Hi everyone, I'm so glad you stopped by. This post is part of the CIC or Crazy Ingredient Challenge. It has been some time since I participated. Life got seriously complicated and no matter how hard I tried, it just seemed I could not get things together in time to post.

This month it was a last minute thing but I did it. I made a recipe, took photos AND wrote my post. Now let's not mention that it is 10 hours from posting time that I am putting all this together and scheduling. But hey, it's done right?

This month's ingredients: Pear and Red Pepper Flakes! I was so excited about this!
I made a favorite dish of mine but changed it up for this challenge. 

1 lb of beef, thinly sliced
1 Asian pear, grated
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup sugar
2 TBSP sesame oil
3 green onions diced
6 medium to large size fresh Brussels sprouts, sliced

In a bowl add your sliced beef, grated pear and all other ingredients. Allow this to sit in a bowl covered in the fridge for at least 1 hour, longer is better. Be sure to stir it often. Drain the liquid and saute on a high heat fast and serve over brown rice. Now if you have a wok that is perfect but a non stick skillet will work just fine, it is what I used.
Quick simple and delicious!
