What's For Dinner Tonight!

Are you looking for a great recipe, that's easy to put together ahead??  If your schedule is busy like mine, this is a great weeknight/weekend meal that my whole family enjoys.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

I always keep a box of frozen Italian meatballs in my freezer - they are great to pop into a quick sauce with pasta or to put in a soup.  But, the way my family likes them best is in a homemade sweet and sour sauce that just takes 5 minutes to make!

All you need is:

 a box of frozen meatballs (or you can make your own if you'd like - but it makes the recipe more time consuming)  Put them in your crock pot - then mix the following together and pour over top for the sauce.

a 19 oz can of pineapple tidbits (with the juice)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup of white vinegar
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon soya sauce
2 teaspoons cornstarch

Mix until the cornstarch is well incorporated and then pour over the meatballs.  Cook on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 5-6 hours. 

It's a great recipe to throw together when you've got an afternoon of errands and picking up the kids.  It will be ready for you when you get home.

I serve mine with white rice and then a vegetable on the side...

These are great to make "en masse" for a party or large get-together - just double or triple the recipe!

My family loves them. I know YOURS will too!!  Enjoy!
