Diamante’s Delicious, Homemade Meatballs!

Every now and then I get a craving for a nice, hot, home cooked meal! These meatballs always hit the spot! Here is what you need:

1 pound ground turkey or chicken, thawed
1/2 medium onion, finely minced
1/4 c. bread crumbs
2 T. minced garlic
2 T. parmesan cheese
1 egg
3 t. salt
dash of pepper

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Form into balls about 1 inch around. Fry in a covered electric frying pan approximately 15 minutes and then turn and fry another 15 minutes or until cooked through.

Serve with mashed potatoes and gravy!! Mouthwatering and mmmm mmmm good!!  Your family will come back begging for more!!

Don’t Give Up

When you’ve tried your best,
Been challenged and tested,
And you’re still wading through the muck,
Don’t give up.

When your dreams aren’t handed,
To you on a silver platter,
And you feel like nothing matters,
Don’t give up.

When others tell you
How wonderful their lives are,
Know that they too have scars.
Don’t give up.

When sorrow hangs around,
Like a thorny crown,
And everybody tells you to smile,
Don’t give up.

Life is a series of tests
And tribulations
With an occasional vacation, so
Don’t give up.

The sun always shines,
After it’s been gone a while,
Know you’ll make it through your trials.
Don’t give up.

For others are watching you,
To see what you will do.
And if they see you make it through,
They might not give up.

The Dance Of Life

Life is a dance; it is a dance
Of love, of compassion,
Of nature, of wit,
If you do it right.

A dance
Of happiness, of holiness,
Of peace, of helpfulness,
If you follow your own enlightened path.

And when your last days come,
You will know if you’ve succeeded
By the people who have gathered around you
And the people who hold you in their hearts.

For life is not a game of chance;
It is a testament
Of who you are as a person
And who you have become,

Through the path
You have chosen to walk
While you found yourself
Here on earth.
