For the Meatballs
To Serve
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. In a very large bowl, mix all Meatball ingredients together very well by hand.
  2. Form into ping pong size balls with your hands as evenly and smooth as possible, for dinner meatballs shape into larger ones. I am planning to make these and I am leaning towards some dinner size and some party size.
  3. You may have as many as 60-70 party size meatballs if just making those.
  4. Preheat your oven to 180 C.
  5. Place meatballs on rack of broiler pan, evenly apart but not touching. Or use the top coil with a counter top oven.
  6. Bake for about 25 minutes or until well browned and fully cooked for the party size meatballs, large dinner size meatballs may take 30 minutes or more.
  7. If freezing, allow meatballs to cool to room temp, bag in single layers then freeze.
For Serving as Appetizers
  1. place the meatballs, just cooked, thawed if frozen, amount is up to you, in your slow cooker, top that with the amount of pasta sauce to cover them and mixed in, and heat on Low setting until good and hot. Serve.
For Serving Dinner Meatballs
  1. Use as needed for Spaghetti & Meatball type dishes. If using frozen, just thaw out first then use as needed.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 500 Baht/2 1/2 kilos of beef. Source it locally and you may get it for less. Figure about 150 Baht for the Parmesan cheese. For 30 servings of party size, this is about 63 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Cut eggs in half lengthwise and scoop out yolk and place the eggs on a plate and the yolks in a bowl, mash yolks with a fork and add a spoon or two of mayo and a squirt of mustard and mix that up, you are looking for a creamy consistency just like deviled eggs. Eggs are in half, yolks removed and mashed, just before the mayo went in.
  2. Add green food coloring to the yolk mixture a few drops at a time and mix until the desired color is achieved.
  3. Mix a few drops of food coloring into 1/4 cup water in a small bowl. Roll up 1-2 slices and pierce with a toothpick. Dip into the water with food coloring, drain excess, place on plate. Serve.
  4. The idea for this was inspired by this children's book.

Servings: servings
Instructions
For the Wings
  1. Preheat oven to 220 C. Prepare a parchment lined or foil lined baking tray with a baking rack on top.
  2. Use paper towels to thoroughly pat dry the chickens wings. In a bowl, mix together the baking powder, salt, and pepper. Add chicken wings and fully coat with the mixture.
  3. Place wings across the baking rack, without overlapping. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, flip over the wings, and bake again for another 30 minutes, or until fully cooked and golden.
For the Sauce
  1. In a pan, combine all ingredients except orange zest. Reduce on medium heat until thickened. Toss with wings. Top with orange zest.
Recipe Notes

Wing prices can vary from 90 Baht/kilo for whole wings, 80 Baht/kilo for drumettes, and 125 Baht/kilo for middle wing sections. I like the drumettes as they have more meat on them, I will price this on 80 Baht. For 2 servings, this is about $1.17. I would assume this could be 4 servings if served with a side of slaw and some corn on the cob, for about 59 cents per serving.
