    Directions:
    Prepare the meatballs according to directions on the bag, drain when cooked.

    Mix the grape jelly and the chili sauce together in a large saucepan, and add meatballs. Cook on medium until hot. Put out toothpicks for serving.

    If using a crockpot, put all in crock and cook on low 6-8 hours. You can also make your own favorite homemade meatballs if you prefer.

    This recipe is old as the hills but everyone still loves it!!


    I should have mentioned that I just dump the frozen meatballs into the crock pot, pour the sauce over and let it go. Or you could thaw the meatballs in the fridge the day before to shorten the heating time.
    This is a GREAT one!! and HERE's a Change Up: USE Raspberry Jam

    Depends on what type of poker players they are. If they are serious about their poker, then nothing that takes too much room on the table, gets their fingers messy and will get on the cards. A bowl of nuts, a bowl of pretzels, everyone's favorite brand of beer, soft drinks if you have some non-drinkers, maybe some coffee. Most guys eat before they leave to play poker. If they are coming for supper first, then they probably will be happy with a grilled steak or ribs. Usually the main thing is that the wife and children should be no-shows for the whole evening.

Don't know if the menu was intentional or not.
    DIL and GD painted golden lab's toenails bright pink night before my son took her duck hunting. Wonder what the duck club guys thought. Your Mother, a genius.
