Greek Meatballs | Keftedes

Indio, California: Now that My Driver is back in Indio, I feel the need to cook and feed him. He runs a lot and needs a lot of fuel. With the Academy Award program on television this evening, I decided to prepare easy Greek Meatballs (Keftedes). The meatballs can be served as a snack with a simple Tzatziki sauce or the meatballs can be stuffed inside pita bread to be enjoyed with sliced tomatoes, green peppers and cucumbers - and slathered with Tzatziki. Either way, you get to look at George Clooney for several hours. Meatballs, ready to bake

Simple Tzatziki Sauce: 6 ounces plain Greek yogurt (fat free is great) ¼cup grated cucumber (do not peel) 1 clove garlic, minced (or use a Dorot frozen garlic cube) 1 teaspoon dried oregano pinch Kosher salt Combine yogurt, cucumber, garlic, oregano and salt in a small bowl. Refrigerate to let flavors meld for an hour or so.  Serve with the meatballs. SLOGGER REPORT:  Since it was quite warm in the desert today, I ran 4 miles on the treadmill in the fitness center. I am going to say I am having a bit of trouble with my left hip. Not sure at this point if it is going to be an issue, but I am telling you, my left hip is giving me a crap- boat-load of pain.

Until my next update, I remain, your "I would like to thank the academy" correspondent.
