Hope y’all aren’t tired of crock pot recipes yet, because I’ve got another slow cooker sensation to share with you today!
ONE. I can hardly believe it. The past year has flown by. And to be perfectly honest, I’m already feeling like a big, sentimental sap at the thought of my baby no longer qualifying as a baby. Our family has been so blessed to have had this sweet little angel in our lives for almost a whole year now, and to say that we all adore her would be the understatement of the decade. Her big brothers absolutely dote on her, she has her daddy utterly and indescribably wrapped around her chubby little finger, and I think my sweet, ever-present companion is pretty much perfect. I just can’t believe that her baby days are already about to be behind us…slow down, time!
However, instead of talking about what a sappy mushball I am, let’s focus on meatballs, shall we? With a big, pink birthday party to prepare for this week, I won’t have much time to devote to making dinners. But that doesn’t mean I want to fall back on take-out. Instead, my trusty crock pot will be earning its keep once again.
This recipe is always a hit with every member of my family, from small to tall. After all, who doesn’t love a good meatball sub? And this version is truly effortless. Just mix a few ingredients into a pound of ground beef (or turkey, if you prefer), form your mixture into meatballs, toss them in the slow cooker with whatever pasta sauce you have handy (homemade or jarred sauce both work great), and forget about it for the rest of the day. When it’s time for dinner, you’ll have juicy meatballs and savory sauce to pile on rolls and top with gooey, melted cheese. A simple veggie and/or side salad round out this quick meal and dinner is served!
And one last thing…please send some positive vibes to me come Thursday, that I don’t find myself crying sentimental tears in a sweet little someone’s first ever cupcake. 😉
