GINGERSNAPS and mushrooms give these tender meatballs a special old-world flavor. The recipe was handed down from my husband's family several years ago.

I was born in 1936 to a family of eight. Much of our food came from our garden and the henhouse at the back of our city lot.

THIS DISH is one my husband and I enjoy any time of the year, and if I don't have leftover ham, I buy a thick slice and use that. Served with a salad and rolls, it's a quick meal for two, but it's also easily adapted for a larger number. -Judy Hall, Lockport, Illinois
