Today, besides little sandwiches, fruit and veggies, cheese and crackers, you know, the regular stuff, I made 3 new-to-me recipes. They were all big hits and found them right here on the web.
First off was Crock Pot Meatballs, maybe that's not new, but since I've never done it I assume some others have not either. This starts with a jar of jam, any flavor, but don't waste any homemade jam for this recipe, a bottle of bar-be-que sauce and 1/4 cup of prepared mustard. Mix it in the crock pot and add a bag of pre-made pre-cooked frozen meatballs. Stir and turn on high for 5 hours. They were gone in minutes and I doubled the recipe.
The next treat has the unlikely name of Cracker Toffee. Now friends, I make real toffee twice a year, Thanksgiving and Christmas and don't feel we need it the rest of the year, even though we WANT it. This recipe has intrigued me as everyone in blogland is always saying how fab it is and oh-so-easy. Well, it was another hit. Gone in minutes and so easy, I will make it again, but does not take the place of real toffee no way. I used this recipe from the Girl Who Ate Everything. Try it, you will be amazed. I didn't use saltines, but some butter crackers I had.
This recipe for Lemon Sugar Cookies from Two Peas and Their Pod is via A Friend to Knit With who bakes a batch of cookies a week and shares her findings with us. California is lemon country and we love puttin' lemon in just about everything. Another big hit at church, so this 4th Sunday for me was 3 new recipes and 3 big hits.
Lots of football and knitting on the menu today! Next post I'll share my wip's, I have a few!
