Day 7: It's Meatball Time!

Tonight I'm hookin' it up McBain style with some killer meatballs!....There are only a million meatball recipes out there, and only really a few keys to it. First of all....You don't need ground lamb or bison or veal, or whatever these "F"ed up cook books are telling you. Anyways, where the hell do you find these things!....Every time I go to a meat market and ask for something like this, they smile, and act like they are about to make a fortune off of me!....So I'm gonna tell you how to make a killer meatball without spending a lot, or doing to much. All you need are these ingedients:

1. ground round (1.5 lbs.) - 15% fat
