Cooking instruction summary:

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet (or dish) with parchment paper for easy cleaning. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well (use your hands, it's fun and works better than a spoon or fork). Form meatballs the size of one tablespoon and line them on the baking sheet or dish. Make sure they all have about the same size for an even cooking. You'll get about 25 meatballs if you did your job well. Bake for about 20 minutes, turning them halfway, until cooked through. You might need to adjust baking time if your meatballs are bigger or smaller.

Food Joke

On the last day of kindergarten, the children brought presents for their teacher. The florist's son gave her a box. She hook it, held it up, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Is it flowers?" "That's right!" said the boy. Then the candy store owner's son gave her his package. She shook it, held it up, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Is it a box of candy?" "That's right!" said the boy. Next the liquor store owner's son handed her his box. She shook it, held it up, and noticed that it was leaking. She touched a drop with her finger and tasted it. "I bet I know what it is. Is it wine?" "No," said the boy. She touched another drop to her tongue. "Is it Champagne?" "No," said the boy. "I give up. What is it?" The boy grinned. "A puppy!"
