Chinese Meatballs and don’t blame The Who or the Jews

Well, its catch up day and I am going back to April 6. Since about then I have been doom scrolling, my new word.. and was my life. But today I thought I woudl look back, catch up and add in some more recipes. I read my first mystery in years, Camino Winds and loved being able to relax into soemthing that wasnt bad news.. so hopefully a flurry of half assed posts today and perhaps soemthing more regular to follow.

Seems pretty certain we will be in the house for a year.. soI have all the time in the world to try to get this right.

On April 6 the story that struck me was from The Washington Post… I am not sure how to summarize what it said. People are blaming the Jews, people are zoom bombing, the president is promoting racism… but if you wan tot look back here is the link to Trump Blew it Not the Jews, Not Fauci, not The WHO.

onto Chinese Meatballs. My mom loved them , my dad hated them.. I like them…
