Caribou Balls Anyone?

Made a big pot of spaghetti and meat balls yesterday. I used a package of Caribou burger and a package of Caribou sausage. We like lots of meatballs! I used to stand at the stove and fry the meat balls 3-5 at a time. Now I roll them all up and bake them on a cookie sheet in the oven. So much easier and just as good.

For the sauce I added mushrooms and black olives.

Another trick I learned while working in commercial kitchens is how to prevent sticky noodles. As soon as you drain the water off, put the noodles back in the pot, mix in a couple ladles of the sauce. Nobody seems to mind the red noodles. Its snowing today. Big storm coming into South Central Alaska. Cordova is supposed to get more snow than Valdez. Valdez is at 20 inches above average snow fall. Anchorage is having the fourth snowiest winter ever.
Spring skiing is going to be GREAT!

Nobody loves spaghetti more than me. I don't know if I'll ever snowboard Thompson Pass, but I guarentee, Gavin will be in that class! I wonder sometimes, what if I started skiing when Judy did... wait a minute, they don't let you smack people on the slopes, do they? Jimmy

Is it me or does that second picture look like some exotic sea urchin?

Those are Caribou Balls and I think the steam clouded my camera.

No sea animals in there!
