my feast of goodness cookbook.
it's a cookbook from the church craig and i were married in....made in the 90's.
it's one of those that all the women of the church submit recipes for as a fundraiser.
it has been well loved.
it's a mess....dirty, crumpled, pages falling out.
i left it on a hot burner once and the cover is burned!
on page 56 is Judy Schroeder's Meatballs.
i have been making this meal for 15 years.
i don't know who judy schroeder is.
but i thank her for this wonderful meal.
you will need this ......and brown sugar.
now....you can't make this meal without getting your hands dirty.
everything goes in a bowl and you mash it up.
i have always used my hands.
if you want to take your time with a spoon....that is up to you.
i can't imagine it working though.
my hands have always been what i use.
i guess you could wear gloves.
mix it up till it looks like this.
then you make them into meatballs.
i should have had 24 but i ended up with 25.
just make it fit.
(it is killing me not to mention anything about pete schweddy right now.....)
put in your oven at 350 for 30 - 40 minutes.
while it's cooking you make your bbq sauce.
take the pan out of the oven and put on the sauce.
i just put one spoonful over each meatball.
of course....i have to leave a few without sauce....for the picky eaters.
then you put it back in the oven for 10 minutes until it's bubbly hot.
and that's it.
we ALWAYS have mashed potatoes with this dish.
and i feel weird that there is nothing green on this plate.
i also feel weird wearing heels and white pants while holding a plate of meatballs!
is this weirder??
smiling AT the camera with a plate of meatballs?
annie threw a major fit about having to eat a meatball
even after i had made it without sauce JUST for her.
she. threw. her. meatball.
do you think june cleaver had to deal with that?
the recipe is in the sidebar.
catsup is ketchup.
my grandmother always pronounced it catsup...so i didn't even think to mention what it was.
yes....catsup IS ketchup.
i had just come from church and that is why i am dressed up.
craig stayed for church business at the last service of church so i was able to prepare
"sunday dinner" the way he grew up with...and loves.
i don't usually deck out in jewelry and white pants to make saucey meatballs.
but i wanted to still look cute when he got home.
