Tagine with Meatballs and Eggs

My very light version of tagine with meatballs, homemade tomato sauce and eggs. Inspired by Moroccan Kefta Tagine or Kefta Mkaouara recipe from moroccanfood.about.com. Easy family dinner with some exotic twist.

Hawaii Moco Loco for Two

One more delicious idea for ground beef use. Rice, hamburger patty, fried egg and gravy! Hawaiian cuisine in one plate, comfort lunch food. I add piece of grilled pineapple, not really original idea, but so Hawaii. Recipe adapted from Cooking the Globe.

Huffington Post say, that the loco moco is said to have been around since the 1940s when — according the one of the legends — Nancy Inouye, the wife-owner of Lincoln Grill, once located in the rainy Big Island town of Hilo, threw something together that the hungry neighborhood kids could afford. When she put it on the board as a menu item and asked what they should call it, Richard, her husband and the restaurant’s cook, said, “The kids are crazy. Call it loco moco.”

Nights became colder and stew is best way to get warm.
