Sweet and Sour Meatballs

From lumpia, to siomai, to tortang giniling and ended-up to sweet and sour meatballs. I don't know if it's an advantage or disadvantage to have a ground beef stock in my fridge. My husband can't decide what recipe he would like for dinner. Yes, I am in-charge of the cooking and it is a bit difficult to set my mind on a specific recipe to cook if the one in-charge of deciding is quite pickle-minded.

Any how, my husband decided to have sweet and sour meatballs earlier today, but when we came home from work, he still asked me, "What's for dinner?".... =( Well I really don't know of he really hadn't decided for what am I going to cook to he just had a slight memory gap =D
