I am not a great cook. I don't belong on Worst Cooks in America or anything, but I'm not fantastic. I almost always use a recipe and even then, things don't always come out the way I think they should. I am getting better but still not near my Mom's caliber. She is the kind of person who can pick things out of the pantry and throw them together to create something delicious every time. Anyway, I started making dinner tonight and really didn't have anything in mind. I ended up making meatballs and noodles rather like swedish meatballs. I didn't use a recipe, just put together what I thought would work. I dished it up and tried it and I thought it was really good! I was patting myself on the back for making something yummy without relying on a recipe when my 8yo said "Mom, would you like my meatballs?" I asked him if he didn't like them and he very politely replied "They just aren't quite to my taste." At least he was nice about it . I guess I will be having leftover meatballs for a couple days. At least I think they are good!
