Really enjoyed your Q&A -- and I can't stop admiring that gorgeous shawl. (I'm a knitter, so it has inspired me to make one like it, ASAP.) And good luck with your legal career! I will celebrate next month the 30th anniversary of my swearing-in at the courthouse in lower Manhattan. I hope you'll enjoy practicing law as much as I have. ;o)
Oh my gosh, what a special occasion for you!! Little old me will be sworn in to begin with next month ;) how funny is that? So glad to meet a fellow (much more seasoned) lawyer -- and to know that our lifestyles can go hand-in-hand with cooking and making delicious food. Thank you so much for your lovely comment and thank you for the compliment on my shawl! I can only imagine how gorgeous your handknit version will be!

Congrats on the win, TRB! These meatballs look amazing, and I plan on making this delicious-sounding recipe soon. I really enjoyed your Q&A, especially the story about making wontons with your great-grandma. Family and food are the stuff that great memories are made of! Love your blog too. :)
Thank you so much for your kind words! They mean the world. I hope you love the meatballs if you try them. :)

Congratulations! I love these meatballs - tea egg story is hilarious (now :-)
Thank you so much, Abbie!! :) Hehe, yes, mortifying then, but hilarious now! All's well that ends well (and only the poor eggs get hurt.)

Warm congratulations on your win, Two Red Bowls! As somebody who just made wontons for the first time yesterday, I laughed out loud at "motley crew of filling-less wonton animals."
Thank you so, so much, you guys! <3 This has been the highlight of my entire week (month? year? eon?) It means so much to me to be able to share this sentimental recipe with you all -- love being a part of the vibrant Food52 community!
