Magical Meatballs

Standard

So, we’re having a baby shower for our ED of Administration and his wife today.  Their new baby just arrived and I can’t wait to meet her!  Like all good Southern gatherings, we eat at all social functions.  There is a lady in the office who, traditionally, brings these really delicious meatballs.  She isn’t going to be here today so I volunteered to make the magic meatballs. 

 The recipe is really easy and in no time flat I had a pot of really scrumptious meatballs, simmering in my kitchen.  I can’t wait to taste them.  Here’s the recipe:

ooh the magic…

1 family size bag of frozen homestyle meatballs
2 bottles of Heinz chili sauce
1 cup of grape jelly
dash lemon juice

Pour frozen meatballs in crock pot.  In pan, combine chili sauce & grape jelly until jelly totally mixes into chili sauce.  Pour over meatballs.  Cover and heat on low for 6 hours (or more).  The longer they simmer, the better they are.

I ran across this article this morning and thought I’d share.

The first time I ever saw it, I didn’t believe that the kid who stuck his tongue on the flag pole was really stuck. Much to my chagrin, it was. You see, I went into the kitchen that night, after the house was quiet and tried my little experiment on the freezer door where the ice cube trays sat. Of course it stuck. Fortunately, I learned that lesson without too much bloodshed. And, to date, you (my dear blogger friends) are one of the first people I’ve ever told that story to. Don’t you feel special? Ah, youth.

I never liked this movie until I became a parent. It would come on every Christmas and I would immediately change the channel. Partly because of the freezer door incident but also, I think, because I just didn’t get it. From a child’s standpoint, I’d never asked for anything as stupid as a BB gun (leave that to my brother) and I probably would have thought bunny pj’s were pretty cute – hey, I am a girl! I certainly didn’t understand why his father would put that awful lamp in the window and why those Elves at the department store were so mean. I just didn’t get it.

Until I became a parent. Suddenly, this movie became the funniest movie EVER. The transformation is really quite unexplainable. But I love this movie. I can’t wait to watch it. In fact, I may watch it tonight. In between updating a blog template. *grin*

I think I’ve recovered from my sore stomach so I am headed to French Quarter for lunch. Yum.
