cocktail meatballs

We invited the sister missionaries to have dinner with us last night.  We had a couple appetizers out and dinner was ready on time but the sisters were running a little late.  My kids were starving so I let them have a few meatballs.  A few turned into quite a few which turned into a meal (my kids eat fast- the sisters weren't really all that late).  My kids liked them so well I had to force them to leave just a few in the crock pot.  As my grandpa always said, when it comes to waiting for everyone to come to the dinner table, "We wait like one pig waits for another."
