National Meatball Day

The once lowly meatball is in the spotlight today.  Once a method to extend limited meat resources by adding some breadcrumbs and egg as a binder with some herbs and other flavors thrown in, it is now a culinary category.  In New York you can find multiple restaurants based around the meatball.  In recipes everywhere meatballs have been elevated to gourmet faire, from every category and cuisine.  No longer a cheap additive to pasta or a low level sandwich filler, you can find refined (and expensive) meatball offerings.  I like them anyway I can find them.  Give them to me!
