It’s really frustrating thinking what to make for dinner! Every day same question asked when dinner time. What’s for dinner? So anyway I decided to make something new to my family. Well it’s not really new. I made some gold sized meatballs, instead making a spaghetti and meatballs with tomato sauce, I made it with homemade mashed potato with White Mushroom Sauce. And it was a hit! Everything really came out good! As a result, I’m making it again tonight!
