Lucy's Meat Balls

This Recipe Makes: 8 Meatballs. I usually double this. Dave

Some (aprox. 1/4 cup)dry parsley
Some (aprox. 2-3 tbs.)Garlic Powder
Some (to taste)Salt & Pepper

Note the exact quantities... Most of Mom's recipes are like this! Seasoon to taste. Live and learn. By the 3rd time you make them, you'll know how much of each ingredient to add... If you don't already.
