Tomato Sauce with Meatballs

Because this sauce is so divine the recipe makes a double batch.  A double batch can be made by each guest but requires a 7 litre/7 quart slow cooker or dutch oven.  In a group setting it is suggested that 2 guests make one recipe just divide vegetables and sauce between 2 pots and guests can roll their own meatballs. This recipe works well started in the morning and cooking in the slow cooker for 6 hours on high or simmering on the stove for 3 hours.  Flavours are fantastic made a day ahead.

Pork, Apples and Potato Latkes

This meal is great served with green beans or asparagus and sour cream is optional.  You will need to purchase a cheesecloth to strain your grated potatoes this is the key for the latkes to stay together.

Pantry Chili

Most of these ingredients you can find in a well stocked pantry. Try with these beans or a mixture of your favourite. Change it up by letting your kids add their own toppings like: grated cheese, chopped fresh cilantro, guacamole or sour cream.

Kung Pao Chicken

This recipe is a success story. Votes from all families are 7/10 or higher. For those with picky eaters start with the chicken plain, vegetables raw and rice on the side then introduce the sauce. One day soon they will gobble it all up!
