“When I had my last baby my 10 year old and I made these meatballs and froze them before adding the soups and baking so that if there was a time we were busy or had little time to prepare dinner we could pull a package out of the freezer and have it in the oven in less than 10 minutes. Every one in my family asks for these meatballs every week.”
