Porcupine Balls!!!!!

What? Is that the special at the Road Kill Cafe? You know the one, where the spoons are just as greasy as the hair of the cook working the grill.  You can write your name in the residue on the table and the waitress is 199 years old.

No Not really but we all know dives like that.

I was reading a book a long time ago about a single dad and he was trying to hold his family together the best that he could after his wife left him. One of the kids' teachers notice that the oldest was missing a lot of school and checked in on her student and becomes the after school care the kids needed while dad was working. This is one of the recipes in the book.

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2/3 cup long-grain rice, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Mix everything together and shape into just bigger than bite size meat balls.  The rice will be the quills of the porcupine.

Drop into boiling tomato soup and simmer for 30 minutes or until done.

Yep it's that simple!

I once read cooking is something you do for your family. But when you’re alone you sometimes have to treat yourself like family. And now that my apartment’s redolent with the smell of food it feels more like a home than a box where I hang my hat.  Waiter Rant, 01-10-10
