What Does It Take... feed 5 (one was missing tonight) hungry college (or recently graduated!) kids?

Well, tonight it took this:

5 pounds of ground beef (that's over 4 dozen meatballs), 2 bottles of BBQ sauce, 1 package of corn, a big bowl of mashed potatoes and a small bag of salad (not many are big on salads! ha).
BBQ meatballs are a family favorite. Ben downed 14 tonight. I'm sure Seth was close behind (or ahead!). Adam probably had 8 or 10. And ya know, even with all the work it takes to make these weekly meals for our "kids", we love it. To me, there's nothing better than sitting down to a meal with "family" and seeing them enjoy what I cooked. That's why I love to cook and bake. Which is probably also why we have 6 "foster" college kids and a weekly "family supper"! This is what God has called us to as a family...and NONE of us would trade it for anything!!!
