So, I found this handy, free application for my Android phone. It is from Allrecipes.com and allows a person to make a few choices as to what they are looking for in a recipe (such as type of meat or other recipe, how long you want to spend cooking it, and whther you want a main course, salad, appetizer, etc.) I can actually plan meals while I am milking cows by using this application on my phone. ;-) This morning I was looking for something to take to a church dinner tomorrow and found a recipe I thought looked really good for meatballs made from pork sausage and stove top stuffing. I don't eat it often, but I am crazy about stove top stuffing. So, I figured this recipe would be very tasty. I wasn't disappointed. Of course, I had to sample them...................and sample them.................and then sample them some more!
