Swedish Meatballs

Ah the last few weeks have been totally mental.

Finally we have some downtime, I have really been keeping it simple at home food wise as I don’t have time to be too creative.
Today I did a massive shop and will be eating at home for the next week.

This is a simple dish that everyone in our house enjoys, hopefully your family will enjoy it too x
