Porcupine Meatballs

Note: there are no porcupines used in these meatballs, so if you were excited that you finally found a use for that porcupine carcass in your garage, I'm sorry.
This is one of my grandma's recipes. Therefore, it is delicious. It's homey with a twist. Some good ol' comfort food.

by amber's left hand

For those of you who don't know,

I am left handed.

I've never thought of it as overly interesting.  At best, it was a random, mildly interesting fact about myself.

However, only a few generations ago, I would have likely been forced to use my right hand instead. I recently looked into the practice and mostly found several message boards of people who report mild to moderate psychological trauma over being forced to use their right hands through various methods such as having their left hand tied behind their back, or even corporal punishment by their teachers or parents. Many were left with crippling insecurities and some even developed speech problems such as stuttering.  Recent studies show that the natural way a lefty's brain works is changed when forced to write with his or her right hand.
