My mom always made epic meatballs when I was a kid. On a Sunday you'd often find her mixing, rolling and baking meatballs for that evening's dinner.
Because of that, I always came to associate meatballs with being a Sunday dinner where there's more time during the day to cook a more elaborate meal.
The thing is - meatballs don't have to be complicated or time consuming to make, which is why they make a great easy dinner option any day of the week.
