Weeknight Meatball Stew

"Fast and easy! Serve this with corn muffins, Jello fruit salad, and vanilla ice cream. I found this recipe at Tops market courtesy of The Beef Checkoff. When I made this recipe doubled the recipe with no problems. When I made this recipe I used a 10oz can of gravy. Since I doubled the recipe I used a 15oz can of stewed tomatoes. Since I happen to have frozen mixed vegetables without potatoes in them on hand I decided to use them. The next time I make this I plan to add the vegetables right from the start as I like my green beans very well cooked."

  1. Bakers had a recipe kiosk in their store. I was looking at the recipe and my three year old pushed print. I wasn't planning on printing it. But it looked easy enough and was something we probably would eat so we went ahead and bought all the ingrediants. My three year old helped me make it and we actually counted out all the meat balls. Smells and tastes great. Very easy to make and doesn't require too many ingrediants. We used a stew blend frozen vegies from the freezer isle<br/>.
  2. Now thiss was easy and oh so good. I used canned drained vegs for the froz excellent and easy what more could ya want

Now I post all recipes I've tried or would like to try. I'm actually making it my goal to try almost all the recipes I've posted as soon as I can. I love food and I love to eat and try different recipes. My favorite course is dessert. I love sweets! This leads me to that I did have Gastric Bypass surgery on July 25th 2008. On that note I love baking and cooking a priceless gift passed down from my grammy who I dearly loved and miss deeply. My grammy passed away 1/15/07. She was a wonderful cook and baker and taught me many things and the most valueable things was how to be a wonderful cook and baker like her.
