Six weeks doesn’t seem so long until it is your turn to wait for your College Freshman to return home. This is the first time Alexandra has been away from our family for 6 Weeks! As you can imagine, we can’t wait to see her and spend time as a Family.
The morning she is due back. I get a text from her… “Can’t wait for a Family Foodie Dinner!”
At that moment I knew.. As much as college life has changed her, she is still the same….
the girl who loves to eat, eat, eat and try new foods…
the girl who would rather eat chick peas than a cookie…
the girl who loves to hang out with her brothers…
the girl who would rather go for a ride to run errands than stay home alone…
the girl who thinks her Dad is still the funniest guy she has ever met…
When I asked Alexandra what Family Foodie should cook for dinner…. she texted back …. MEATBALLS
It is so true The More things change, The More they stay the same….
…the girl we still think of as our baby is figuring out the world on her own but her Heart Remains Around the Family Table!
I must warn you…this hands on recipe!
FAMILY FOODIE MEATBALLS
3 lbs Ground Pork
3 slices of white bread
