    my bobka called it mokey ball soup too!!!!!!! I've been searching for a recipe and no one ever knew what the hay i was talking about!!!! I don't recall the ground beef part but I can't wait to try this You can't know how excited I am right now thank you a hundred times! You wouldn't by chance have a recipe for mushroom perogies (that was always my fave flavor)
