Swedish Meatballs


I found this recipe here.

It’s the best one I’ve tried yet- to date. I normally wouldn’t try this with pork, because I’m not a huge pork fan…but I decided to give it a go. I was so shocked at how good it is! I’ll definitely be keeping this recipe.

I’ve been sitting here waiting for the kid to get home. He’s really not going to be happy with me. The reason why is because he has to clean his bedroom and the game room. In addition he has to pick his clothes up out of the floor in the bathroom. It makes me laugh because he gets all cranky and whinny. He asks every single week, multiple times to get paid for chores, but we keep telling him no. First off, there are things he’s required to do, because it’s his space. I wont pay him to clean his room….However, I’d be willing to give him money if he did other things in the house in addition to cleaning his space. We had the idea of collecting cans, because we buy a lot of canned drinks. Well he refused to get out and do the work for them…so here we are back at square one….teaching a child responsibility and independence is hard work ya’ll!

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion, diced

1 lbs ground pork

    I always loved Swedish Meatballs when I could eat solid food! I don’t what Ikea is like outside of Canada but here they have a little restaurant in the middle of their maze, a food cart like area after the cashiers and a place where you can buy frozen foods or pantry items.
    If you can resist the quick and cheap hotdogs and drink – come on, you know you love them – try their Swedish Meatballs. I was surprised by how good they were! I even bought them from their frozen section.
    That was me being lazy! I think that this recipe looks really easy and delicious.
    Happy cooking!
