Chicken Meatball Soup

Actual Monday Menu – Chicken Meatball Soup, Leftover Roasted Vegetables (Sweet Potatoes, Broccoli, Red Onions and Button Mushrooms), Dinner Rolls

Here is the Chicken Meatball Recipe
I would not make them again, especially with chicken thighs. There was simply too much raw chicken. It was all through the food processor, I had to have bowls to move the mixture to, a place to hold the meatballs before cooking, and so on. Maybe with already ground chicken, but my family didn’t really seem to like them.

Did the dinner help empty the pantry and freezer? YES! I had turkey stock in the freezer. I just warmed the stock on the stove, cooked the meatballs (also from the freezer) in that and added the pasta. A Simple Soup! The carrots from the original menu got cancelled because we brought home the roasted vegetables from our family dinner Sunday night. The Gratin also got cancelled because of the sweet potatoes in the vegetable mix. The dinner rolls were also in the freezer and now we have four less.
