When we lived in Pasadena, Ca 2010-2014, we would drive out to Camrillo, CA where Randy would drop me off at the huge Outlet center while he went to that office to work. Then when he got the notice that his credit card was at the limit, he would leave the office and drive to pick me up for us to go have dinner before driving back to Pasadena! That way we missed all the 5:00 traffic and we came home full as a tick!(Actually how full can a tick be). Maybe the more accurate phrase would be, we were stuffed as a pig; as we had found a great little Mexican food place that someone had told us about. It was there that I had my first Albondigas! Where had this been all my life? I feel in love with it. Because they had a chip and salsa bar and this amazing soup, I feasted on just that. Chips and soup!!! While looking through an old cookbook from 1993 last night there it was. A recipe for that great soup. So because my birthday is coming up next month, I am being extra nice, so thought I would share it! Here it is! Enjoy!
