So I’m going to be in a wedding next year. My cousin Lindsey is getting married and she asked me to be a bridesmaid. Getting all gussied up and prancing around I can do – as long as I’m in flats. But the thing I knew I could rock was helping pull off her bridal shower. Actually it was a couples shower. This past weekend I, along with the other bridesmaids, had a little shower for Lindsey and I was able to make a couple of things for everyone to eat.
The shower was close to my old hometown so I had to use my parents house to get everything together. My mom even commented that I was going to look back on this weekend and cringe because I cooked all weekend. Seriously, every day I was home I cooked something.
Friday night the family celebrated my dad’s birthday and I cooked for everyone. Well, I threw a pot roast in the slow cooker. But in all fairness, I asked my dad if he wanted to go to Outback or have me make a pot roast for him. He chose the pot roast. Neither I, or the kids, were happy about his choice. Sydni even told me I should have suggested pizza or Outback and then he would have chosen Outback. And he made me tear up when I was hugging him goodbye on Sunday because he said it was perfect that his baby made him his birthday dinner. Awwwww. I love that man.
Ok, back to the shower. My cousin Ashley and I were in charge of the food. We had to serve items that “go together like Lindsey and Andy” – get it. Awwww.
My items were all favorites of mine, of course: King’s Hawaiian Poppy Seed Sandwiches, Pecan and Brie Bites, Veggies and Ranch dressing, Crostini with cream cheese and the to-die-for Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Sauce.
Oh and these little 3-Ingredient Meatball Appetizers. Seriously. Three ingredients and these little frozen meatballs are transformed into little bites of deliciousness. My nephews loved them so much I had to go get the ingredients and put them in the crockpot before I left on my drive back home. They were happy campers. I’d do anything for those sweethearts.
3-Ingredient Meatball Appetizers
1 – bag frozen meatballs (any kind – between 50-66 meatballs is average size bag)
1 – 18 oz jar Grape Jelly
1 – 18 oz jar your favorite BBQ Sauce (I used Stubbs original sauce)
Add grape jelly and bbq sauce to slow cooker. Throw in the meatballs and stir together.
Set crockpot on high and let cook for 3-4 hours, stirring a couple of times.
