I'm making Lions Head Meatballs but making it more like a soup i.e., meatballs smaller, more broth, and then adding some pea pods and bean sprouts. If I feel it will taste right I'll add a squeeze of lime and some cilantro too - I'm trying VERY hard to make this Chinese dish taste Thai

My neighborhood civic league had its holiday home tour yesterday afternoon, and I volunteered as a hostess. After the tour (3-7 p.m.), we have a potluck dinner at the home of the organizer, so earlier in the day, I made a double recipe of rigatoni with meat sauce, peppers and onions with mozzarella on top. They devoured it

This is my type of meal. It looks so good and I enjoyed seeing how you prepared it with the pix and all in your links. Thanks for sharing. I don't know where I'd get the smoked plums, so they'll have to be omitted.

Thank you LEFSElover. The smoked plums are becoming very rare here also. I only know of a source. There is also a dish based on them as many other dishes for the Christmas fast.

Len - food is more than nurishment.
