The Mad Scientist and the Meatballs.....

So Dak's Senior Year so far is cracking me up. Well for the most part....except for Chem II. No it's not so funny. anyway.....

Last Friday he had initiation for SHC -- Science History Club and for that you had to dress and play the part of what ever science or history figure the club decided on, so for Dak it was a Mad Scientist. Go figure =) He is so calm and all; I'd have thought they would have picked someone more docile....hahahahahahahahaha I crack me up!!! =)

So in true Dak fashion, he went ALL out!!! He does nothing small.nothing.

Check him out ~~ oh son.....you make me happy =0)

Look at that hair and those glasses.
Too funny.....

The Scientist: Brandon:
Geologist: Chazlin
Mad Scientist: Dak
Physicist: Leezy

These kids crack.me.up.

Leezy even as a Physicist still has 'tude....

They are SO much fun!!!
Well, Friday evening he had to take a dish that looked like a science experiment gone wrong for the Banquet. Dak found a recipe in our Halloween holiday recipe book. Now I thought it sounded completely disgusting, but his teachers wanted the recipe....huh? And then Dick tried them on Saturday and said they were the best meatballs he has ever had. Double HUH? So I thought I'd go ahead and share the recipe, but I will warn you....WEIRD combo of food comin' your way.....

Cranberry Sauerkraut Meatballs
1 can (14-oz) whole berry cranberry sauce
1 can (14-oz) sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
1 bottle (12-oz) chili sauce
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 package (32-oz) frozen fully cooked home style meatballs, thawed
In a 4-qt slow cooker, combine the cranberry sauce, sauerkraut, chili sauce and brown sugar. Stir in meatballs. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until heated through.
I know....WEIRD combo!!! But these are well-loved meatballs around these parts. So although they look like a science experiment gone wrong, the stomach apparently doesn't care =0)

What a fun day it was!!!!! He is so funny.

Knee update:
Thank you all for your sweet comments on my post yesterday. Right now we are checking to see what our insurance will cover, and then we will go from there. I will keep y'all posted as we walk through this journey.

James 1:5 (New International Version)
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.

Love you all ~~
Have a Blessed day ~~
