Writing Wednesday – 15 February 2017


Hello everybody and welcome to another Writing Wednesday. The idea of this is I am going to write about whatever subject has inspired me this week.

Everybody is welcome to join in, of course, and you can do that by either writing something in the comments or giving me a pingback to your work. (It goes without saying that you should feel free to share your work if you get the urge to do so!)

What am I going to use as my inspiration this week?

The word… Victory.


All of those people who tell you that winning is the most important thing other born losers. They are the people that are never going to win and like to make excuses before that happens. Taking part is nothing if you have nothing to show for it at the end.

Me? I am here for the glory and no other…

Chicken Parmesan Meatball Subs


1 1/2 pounds ground lean chicken

1 tablespoon grill seasoning blend (recommended: Montreal Steak Seasoning by McCormick)

1 large egg

1 cup grated Parmesan Cheese

1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs (pulsate 2 slices of 100% whole wheat bread) with Italian seasoning

Handful of chopped parsley leaves

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Canned or homemade tomato basil

spaghetti sauce

4 (6 to 8-inch) crusty whole wheat sub rolls

1 1/2 cups shredded provolone



Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place ground chicken in a bowl and season with grill seasoning. Add egg, half of the grated cheese, bread crumbs, parsley, and extra-virgin olive oil to the bowl. Mix the chicken and form 12 large meatballs. Squish the balls to flatten them a bit like mini oval meatloaves. Bake the meatballs 15 minutes until golden and firm. Once the meatballs come out switch the broiler on. Remove the meat from oven and loosen with a thin spatula. Turn meat balls in tomato sauce. Cut sub rolls making the bottom a little deeper than the top. Hollow out a little bread and lightly toast the sub rolls under broiler. Fill the bottoms of the breads with flattened balls and extra sauce. Combine the provolone and remaining Parmesan. Cover the subs with cheese and return to broiler to melt the cheese until golden.
