Thanks goodness it is Friday! This was a really long week! My son got his first cold at school, so that means we haven’t slept well the last couple of nights. Hopefully a nice relaxing weekend will be what he needs to get better. The leaves are starting to change up in the mountains, so we might take a trip up there to see all the gorgeous colors.
And maybe I will make more meatballs. They are pure comfort food to me, and I love them! I had this recipe printed for over a year. Really not sure why it took me so long to make them. I made them when my parents were here, and everyone loved them. My Dad, ever the skeptic, didn’t really like the idea of soy sauce for dipping. But once he was forced to try it, he was sold. He went back for more. Even my 84 year old grandpa ate his fair share!
These come together very quickly, so they are great for a weeknight meal. Or you could easily serve them as appetizers for the weekend football get togethers. My 7 year old dipped his in ketchup, so they will even work for the little ones in the crowd.
