“Money can’t buy happiness. Luckily, there are meatballs.”
Funny things happen when I clean out nooks and crannies. Sometimes I find money. Sometimes I find clothes that seem like a great beginning to a new outfit combination. And sometimes I find recipes! This is one of those recipes that was between the pages of a book that I hadn’t looked at in a number of years.
15 oz can of unsalted tomato sauce
24 ounce bag of frozen, fully cooked meatballs
1 jar cranberry jalapeno jelly
Put everything into a saucepan and cook on high until boiling. Stir and reduce the heat.
Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the meatballs are heated through. I have a feeling that any jalapeño jelly will work nicely. Will be fun to research that project!
If you’ve been paying attention to side dish recipes you should have no trouble putting a party together. If you’re too uninterested in effort, for one reason or another, put out a few blocks of cheese with some crackers, a store-bought veggie tray, a bowl of potato chips, and a cake that will have them begging for the recipe.
My favorite recipe for a successful dessert is to buy a cake at Whole Foods. The flourless chocolate is amazing! If you want to trip out on gluten once in a while, any of their cakes will take the edge off the guilt. Love them!
