Big Kev's Texas Style Long Island Iced Tea
This is close to my favorite recipe for Long Island iced tea. But I switch out the Triple-sec for 1.5 oz of Sweet & Sour Mix, and add just enough Cola to color it like iced tea.

Margaret's Keftedes (Greek Meatballs)
Cut the number of eggs to one or two for a pound of meat. For an easier alternate, instead of frying, try baking them in a greased cassarole dish at 350 (without rolling them in flour).
