Thank you Nikki!!!

Saturday, February 13, 2010
Wow!!! Thank you soooo much for this recipe! This was, no joke, the BEST meatballs I have ever had! I ended up using an entire zucchini and half a yellow squash. So to make up for it, I used 2 eggs and 1 cup of Quinoa. It had this surprise sweetness to it. It was AMAZING. I was a little worried when I started to form the meatballs because it was so moist but they cooked fine and kept their shape. (I cooked them for 20 minutes) I made the easier gravy ever (1 can of cream of mushroom soup + 1 can french onion soup) which just so happens to be the best gravy ever!

I am embarrassed to say that it made enough for 2 families and we ate almost all of it.  Also here is a picture of the Quinoa I used. It can be found at Costco. Like Nikki said, it has so many uses and is soo good for you. I was really excited that she posted a recipe that included it so that I could try it out! (We received this for Christmas as part of our Food Storage) It can be used just like rice, and stores really good! I made it the other night and added chicken seasoning, shredded cheese and salt a pepper. The hubby loved it!

I can't wait to make these meatballs again next week! ..and the week after that.. and the week after that..
