Dinner with Marley Spoon: Lamb Polpette

I had a bit of a meltdown a couple of months ago. One evening at home – I can’t remember if it was in the kitchen or snuggled up on the sofa watching Netflix – but in any case it was after dinner, I asked Night Owl that age-old question of “What would you like for dinner tomorrow night?”…
