    Easy Swedish Meatballs 


    It was late in the day on Monday and my sweetheart was coming home for dinner. What should I do to make dinner fast and please him with a tasty dish. Then I remembered I had Frozen Turkey Meatballs in the freezer and I had sour cream. I made this dish in 20 minutes and it was so good he was looking for more and wanted some to take to work the next day. Here is my recipe:

    Easy Swedish Meatballs with Penne

    1 lb Frozen Turkey Meatballs

    8 oz. Dry Penne Pasta

    8 oz. Dairy Sour Cream or lite sour cream

    1 Can Mushroom Soup or Healthy Choice Mushroom Soup

    1 Cup Chicken Broth or Chicken Bouillon

    Boil water for the pasta in a large sauce pan. Cook the pasta according to the box.

    Meanwhile: Saute the meatballs in a bit of oil or butter until brown. Add the chicken bouillon and simmer covered till meatballs are completely done.

    Extending Butter 


    I found that creamy fresh butter tastes so good but it’s not cheap. I set out to find recipes to extend my butter and make it more healthy. Low and behold I found all the instructions on a blog I love. Go see her directions at TipNut. http://tipnut.com/how-to-turn-one-stick-of-butter-into-two/

    I made the half butter half oil recipe and was astounded to find it really is soft in the fridge and though not fat free its healthier than eating margarine. I can’t wait to make the diet version with Lecithin Powder. You’ll find my butter recipe below:

    One version of this butter can be made by simply blending equal parts of oil and butter together, pouring into covered containers, and storing in the refrigerator. By including the other ingredients though you will have a spread that stays solid longer at room temperature (still refrigerate when not in use).
