When the boys woke up this morning, they found this in their bathroom:
That crazy elf, a/k/a Jeff, had rolled the bathroom!
The Christmas Cantata was wonderful! I enjoyed every song they sang. The performances of the individual soloists were fantastic. A couple of them I wish I had recorded. It was a blessing to us all!
After church, we were lazy most of the day. I decided to cook something special for supper. I had some hamburger meat in the refrigerator so I decided to make the Pioneer Woman's meatballs for supper.
They were easy to mix together, and I used my Pampered Chef medium scoop to make the meatballs.
I popped them in the freezer for 30 min or so as the recipe said . . .
Then I floured them and browned them in my big Pampered Chef skillet. I actually over-crowded my skillet so next time I'll brown the meatballs in batches like the recipe says . . .
Put them in the rectangular dish:
Poured the recipe's sauce on the meatballs:
Baked the meatballs in the oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes:
Okay. They were sooooooo good! That picture may not look too great, but the meatballs were fine! Everyone loved them. . . .even Shane! He ate two servings (Shane size servings)! I served them with mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese. No vegetables tonight. I count the ketchup in the meatball sauce as a vegetable. :D
You can find the Pioneer Woman's meatball recipe on her site http://thepioneerwoman.com/
or you can go directly to the Meatball recipe HERE!
Her recipe calls for oats, but I didn't have any so I used Progresso breadcrumbs. Also the sauce is very tangy, so the next time I make them, I'm going to cut back on the vinegar.
This recipe is a little time consuming to make. Make sure you start early when you make them. They have to sit in the freezer for 30+ minutes, then you have to brown them, and then cook them in the oven 45 minutes. We were 8 o'clock eating because I didn't factor in all that time! It makes a lot too. We didn't eat but half of them so I froze the leftovers for later.
Hope y'all have a great Monday! Remember, just 6 more shopping days left until Christmas!
