Did I forget it was Saturday again?
I should be tarred and feathered.
That would hurt. I checked on Google for pics, and eeeeuuuuuwwwww...
I am not posting those pics here. Really??? People did that?????
Okay, so what can we do for Simply Saturday? Something simple, right?
Napping is boring but grievously underrated.
Hey, have we done the Meatballs yet? The buffet line ones that are amazing and easy? Must check.... (Ruthy bustles away, apron flapping, wondering why she didn't do this last night. She's such a dork...)
No! I don't see it unless I forgot to label it and if I did it's worth doing again because they're beyond yummy and it's as simple as opening four cans.
Now that's easy-peasy!
One large bag smallish meatballs (I get mine from Sam's Club and you can use the smaller grocery store bag but we only make these when there's a crowd coming.)
2 cans Hormel chili, no beans
2 cans Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce (the kind that slurps out in the shape of a can....)
Pour into large slow-cooker. Stir. Add meatballs. (I thaw them so they heat faster because I'm always a little behind... like that's a surprise, right? But if they're frozen they're fine, just heat them a little longer.)
Heat on high for two hours (or five if you forget to turn them down, oops!) and then turn down to low and serve throughout the day.
Really, truly delicious sweet/savory sauce and everyone will ask you for your secret recipe. And you don't have to tell them, you can just Cheshire Cat smile and shrug like you're that cool.
Because clearly, you are.
We served these at a wedding reception (picnic style reception) last week and no one died.
Now, there's a ringing endorsement! :)
