Scrumptious Fare

I found this recipe a while ago, and never got around to making it until last night. The whole family loved it, and when I had to turn Elijah down from his 4Th serving, I decided it was definitely a keeper, and one to share with you all! So here is the recipe for our 5 star dish -

Sweet-and-Sour Meatballs
1 can (20 oz) pineapple chunks
1/3 c. water
3 T vinegar
1 T soy sauce
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
3 T cornstarch
1 batch of 30 meatballs (frozen or thawed) - I use Sam's Club frozen meatballs, they are our favorite!
1 large green pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
Hot cooked rice

Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Set pineapple aside. Add water to juice if needed to measure 1 cup; pour into a large skillet. Add 1/3 c. water, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar and cornstarch; stir until smooth. Cook over medium heat until thick, stirring constantly. Add pineapple, meatballs and green pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve over rice. Yield: 6 servings

Hi Donnette! Been checking out your blog for awhile now, and haven't ever left a comment...but these meatballs encouraged me to do so! They look delicious, and I just got meatballs on sale last week. Enjoy seeing your family and your craft-y projects. You can stop by my new blog and see pictures of our family!

All I can say is.....

I am just glad that I am not the only mother whose children eat 3rds and ask for more.

It makes me feel much better. :-)
