Happy Friday ya’ll! I have a friend who keeps asking me to feature some recipes on the blog each week. I love her to pieces but I honestly wasn’t sure I wanted to tackle that. But, since I’ve made it my mission to share all things that I’m passionate about with you, why would this be any different? I’m at a stage in my life where I can’t spend hours in my kitchen(enter the toddler). BUT, I’m learning I don’t have to in order to make healthy and yummy food for my fam. So Meredith, this is for you.
Each Friday I’ll post a few recipes from my week. Hopefully it helps you since it will obviously pass the taste test in my house, plus it will keep me accountable to having a few extra special recipes in my rotation for the week.
We had a busy week this week. My oldest son is moving up to kid pitch this fall(gasp) so he’s having practice 3 nights a week…in the summer. So, my evenings feel like school has already started. Awesome. It’s good for him and his team, he spends time with his daddy and they have a blast. SO, I can’t complain. However, it’s forced me to break away from my grill to have some meals that can be re-heated for the boys when they get home. I LOVE my crockpot. Seriously whoever invented that sucker deserves an award. It’s amazing and I use mine year round. In the summer it keeps my kitchen cool and is perfect for our busy baseball nights, days spent at the pool or lazy weekends where I don’t feel like getting in the kitchen at 5pm.
This week my crockpot meal was spaghetti and meatballs. Nothing fancy I know. But, I wanted to share this recipe because it was so stinking easy! I haven’t made homemade meatballs in a while but I couldn’t resist this week. This recipe made a ton of meatballs ya’ll. My hubby took them for leftovers the next day plus we had enough to make meatball subs this coming weekend. My kids LOVED them. Love that. I try to make at least 1 if not 2 meals a week that leave me with leftovers. It gives me an automatic night off from cooking. Here’s the recipe…http://www.marthastewart.com/866430/classic-beef-meatballs and here is a picture of mine.
