Easy Appetizer

Image
Are you hosting family or throwing a party for the holiday season?  May I suggest an easy appetizer?  My sister-in-law makes these meatballs in the crockpot and they are yummy to my tummy.  Just throw fully cooked meatballs, Sweet Baby Rays Barbeque Sauce and a 15 oz. can of Cranberry Sauce in the crockpot and heat.  Enjoy!

Random Thoughts on Day Seven

A few random thoughts about the first seven days...

Speaking of eggs, my handsome husband hates our non-stick fry pan.  According to him it's a sticky fry pan.  If you don't want to frustrate y…

Have you heard of The Whole30?  It's a food "program", not diet.  Ok, whatever you want to call it, it's 30 days eating nothing but fruits, vegetables and meat.  No sugar, MSG, alcohol, grains, legumes, dairy, baked goods or junk foods.  I may have missed a few but you get the idea.

I am not a diet kind of girl.  I've never done any of the popular diets out there.  The closest I've come to a diet is trying to decrease my Mountain Dew intake.  I know.  Right now you're thinking, Mountain Dew??  Don't judge.  It's one of my many downfalls.

Anyway, a friend and her husband just finished up their Whole30 program and had nothing but good things to say about how they feel now.  That kind of talk intrigues me and since I love books and had some extra cash, I bought the book and read it.  And, I've bought into the idea of The Whole30 program.

It makes sense to me.  Why?  It eliminates foods we tend to be allergic to or at least intolerant of and the…
