Quick & Easy Greek Themed Meatballs with lemon-dill sauce

With working, rearing a 6 month old, and squeezing in dinner before my husband goes to work in the evenings I find myself often short on time. So a lot of recipes I ve been developing lately are focused on convenience and speed, while hopefully maintaining interesting and varied flavors. This particular dish came about from my craving for something with Greek flavors, but not having the time to do anything from scratch. Normally I would make meatballs from scratch with all the seasoning infused, but alas time crunch again. Lol. Although not authentic or fresh meatballs it did in a pinch and I hope you enjoy!
