Story; Grandma Cay served this for the Sheldon Lions club in the early 1970's. At that time only the men were allowed to be members of the Lions club and the wives served the monthly meals. During one of the turns, Grandma and another lady served the porcupine meatballs. they were asked how long it took them to put the stick the rice into the meatballs. This recipe takes a while to make, but is wonderful served with mashed potatoes.
