Make-Ahead Freezer Meatballs are perfect for a variety of different recipes.  Recipe makes about 100 meatballs.It’s been a very productive day, thank heavens! Of late, I have felt like I’ve been chasing my tail or maybe I’ve been chasing the dog’s tail. She leads me on a very merry chase most days.

I managed to get my daily chores done, quite a bit of freezer cooking completed, and assisted the band director again.

Of late, I’ve been very judgmental about certain members of my family who I don’t feel are living up to their potential. They seem to want everything handed to them on the proverbial silver platter. Unfortunately, I failed to realize that I’ve been a bit of a slug-a-bug too and I really shouldn’t be judging others.

I love the following verse. It was just what I needed to knock the dust off my rear.

Proverbs 12:11 ESV –

“Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread, but he who follows worthless pursuits lacks sense.”
