Last week's Bunco party was a success and now it's time to pass along those recipes.
First, thank you to those who gave me hints on how to create a link for printable recipe. I'm a little technologically challenged, but I figured it out.
Lisa asked for the recipe for the Swedish meatball sauce. I'm also providing the recipe for the meatballs. I had a lot of menu items to prepare for the party and in an effort to budget my time, I actually purchased a bag of frozen Swedish meatballs at IKEA.
"Food? At IKEA?" my friend asked.
Yes, IKEA has a food department that carries specialty Swedish items. I passed on the herring floating in different sauces, and the salmon paste and cavier packaged in tubes resembling toothpaste. The ginger cookies looked interesting, as did the Lingonberries, but I left the store with nothing but the meatballs.
If you don't have an IKEA nearby, you can make your own Swedish meatballs.
Here's the recipe for the sauce.
TIP: When forming meatballs, continually dip your hands in cold water.
When making a sauce with a flour base, always cook the flour while stirring. If you don't cook the flour your sauce will have a gummy flavor and texture.
Thanks for stopping by today. We're fighting the battle against cabin fever. It would be easier if I still had my snowmobile. I could race across the open cornfields under the moonlight. Believe me when I say that nothing can compare.
