Oven Baked Meatballs & the dog trainer

First, I want to share my Oven Baked Meatballs recipe.  There is nothing fancy about this but I CRAVE these.  I found the recipe a few years back in my MOMS Club group's cookbook.  I love to have them over mashed potatoes.

Oven Baked Meatballs

1 lb. lean ground beef
1/4 c. ketchup
1 T. mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
Dash Garlic Powder

10 3/4 oz. can cream of chicken soup (I use reduced fat)
1/2 c. shredded cheddar
1/3 c. milk
Dash Tabasco Sauce (I add several dashes;)

Combine meatball ingredients.  Shape into walnut-sized meatballs.  Place in casserole and bake, uncovered, at 350* for 30 minutes.  Drain meatballs.  

Mix sauce ingredients together and pour over meatballs.  Bake an additional 10-15 minutes more.  

Serve with rice or mashed potatoes.

Also, here are a few pictures of Quinn, 'training' the dog.

Some shots of the kids right before Trick-or-Treating.

Here are the kids acting the part:
It's a bird!  It's a plane!  It's Supergirl!

I'm open!

The kid's pumpkins.  Quinn's is the face, Kade's is the Grim Reaper, & Gracie's is the spider.
