Today’s Food Preps

There wasn’t much to get done today. It always seems like more work than it really is. 

The pork roast was seasoned and cooked so it will be ready for lunch tomorrow. I tasted it and it’s really good!

The meatballs were made for the Swedish meatballs. I’ll make the gravy on Tuesday morning just before serving them.



That’s a lot of meatballs. One pound of ground beef and one pound of ground pork . . it would be a lot of small meatballs. I could have taken half the meat mixture, added more spices and made it into a meatloaf but I have a meatloaf in the freezer so I divided the meatballs up and got 5 packages (4 for the freezer) of meatballs.



That’s one meal for Tuesday and four future meals. Even though this isn’t my recipe for meatballs that go into spaghetti sauce, I think I could put them in sauce and no one would complain.

Everything else for this week will be done on the day, or day before the meal is served.

    These look great. I made the crashed hot potatoes yesterday and they were a hit with my family. These meatballs are my next thing to try. I like cooking ahead so I can just take things out of the freezer. Mainly because I don’t like to cook!

    These look yummy! I’ve got a ton of ground beef in the freezer, I don’t know why it doesn’t occur to me to make meatballs ever but maybe I should.

    Also, you inspired me to get a pressure cooker!! I still need to get the pressure gauge tested but I’m so excited to get started.
