NATIONAL MEATBALL DAY

It is not clear how this day got started, but who can resist the idea of celebrating National Meatball Day?  There are many different ways to celebrate meatballs:
  • Spaghetti and meatballs
  • Swedish Meatballs
  • Meatball Sub
  • Meatball Pizza
  • Turkey Meatballs
  • Lamb Meatballs
  • Porcupine Meatballs (made with rice)
  • and the list goes on and on.
There is a restaurant in New York that has 54 different kinds of meatballs.  Not only do meatballs allow for variety, but they move from appetizer to side dish to the main dish quite easily.  Meatballs can be made the night before and put in the crockpot, or days before and kept in the freezer.   
HOW TO OBSERVE
To celebrate, some restaurants give a free side order of meatballs, while others are donating money to homeless shelters. Cook yourself up your favorite meatballs or go out and order some from a restaurant near you! Use #NationalMeatballDay to share on social media.

    1. I love them when they're made right. I remember one restaurant's meatballs tasted like bread balls flavored with a drop of meat.

  9. Do you have sweetgum trees where you live? Their seeds are fairly large and brown, and our son always called them meatballs when we would see them in our yard or on walking trails. If you can, read this book to a child, "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs". It was one of our son's favorites.
