Sometimes I can still here the wind blowing the leaves of the coconuts trees outside of my bedroom window. I long for the days of laying by the ocean shore watching the waves roll in. I can't be in Hawaii anymore, but I can bring the flavors of the island to my kitchen table. Ready for the taste of Hawaii . . . here it is . . . (This recipe is from my friend, Lori)
You can make homemade meatballs if you like, but I like the shortcut better:
1 32 oz bag of home style frozen meatballs
1 c. packed brown sugar
2 cans pineapple tidbits
2/3 c vinegar
2T soy sauce
2/3 c chopped green pepper (optional)
Place frozen meatballs in the crock pot.
mix other ingredients in a medium bowl and add to crock pot.
Cook on low for 4 hours ( I stir it once or twice the second two hours)
Serve over white rice . . .
Also . . . I was tagged by my friend, Ang, over at Sparkles and Bugs. She writes a Health/Fitness/Craft blog and is worth getting to know. I haven't played tagged for years, but these are the rules:
