Chinese Meatballs

Chinese Meatballs

The nice thing about frozen meatballs is you can throw them in the crockpot with some sauce and away you go — Chinese Meatballs.  Yes, that’s right.

I don’t think you’ll find this on the menu at a Chinese restaurant.  I took some homemade sweet-n-sour sauce we canned, some pineapple and the meatballs and threw it all in the crockpot.  Served with rice it is like sweet-n-sour pork without the bones.  And, we have enough for another meal even after feeding the missionaries!

Sisters Petersen and Jones came to dinner.  We enjoyed the meatballs and then ice cream for dessert.  Since it was Fast Sunday, they shared a message about the power of fasting.  (In the Mormon church we fast on the first Sunday of each month.  To us, a “fast” consist of going without food or drink for 2 meals, and contributing what we would have spent on those meals to a fund that is used to feed the poor and needy.)

We had a large number of visitors at church today.  You can tell it is tourist season, we have to open the partitions in to the cultural hall in order to fit people in the chapel.

Tomorrow is the First Monday Event, and I’ve already had two people say they can’t make it.  I know Gary is coming.  I hope we have more people.  After all, it is a fun event.
