I see the lights on the ceiling.

I see the stars in the lights.

I see the what we once had, and what we

You see the curtains draped in front of me.

You see the sun come up alone.

You want to show me just what you can see,

and I, I turn away.

You hear my words, you hate my words, I

hate you too.

I look right at your eyes, I look right

through your eyes.

I change conversation thought for you…

I throw a look that you can’t catch from

far behind, and you, you turn away.

But don’t feel bad ’cause you do to me all

the things I do to you…

Moroccan Meatballs with tangy tomato sauce, in Slow cooker

My friend Dana made me this recipe years ago and I fell in love with it instantly. It was actually the reason that I bought a slow cooker, because I HAD to be able to make this at home. It has such an interesting and flavourful combination of spices; using cinnamon & cumin, fennel & oregano, orange & raisins. The original recipe called for much less sauce, but the sauce is my favourite part so my recipe makes enough sauce that it is almost soup-like. Sometimes I eat it over quinoa or couscous, but often I just eat it as a soup. And I love serving it with a few thin slices of parmesan cheese (which is not at all moroccan!)
