Crockpot Stuffed Meatballs

The longest relationship I've ever been in has been with my crockpot. She (usually) never lets me down. And this, well, this is one of those times where I love her more than life itself.

Taken—and adapted—from one of the uber popular Tasty videos on Facebook, each time I've made these meatballs every single person has cleaned their plate and gotten seconds.
There's nothing better than an easy meal that makes the whole house smell amazing that even a toddler will take seconds of and not throw a single morsel to the dog.
Crockpot Stuffed Meatballs
1 jar of favorite red sauce
1 pound ground beef
1 block mozzarella cheese
1 egg
1 medium onion, diced
¼ cup of parmesan
½ cup of bread crumbs
1 clove of garlic, smashed
2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of black pepper
½ cup of milk
½ cup of Italian seasoning blend
½ teaspoon marjoram

Cube the mozzarella to be about the size of a square nickel. Mix together beef, onion, all spices, eggs, milk, parm and bread crumbs. Taking the beef mixture, form balls around the cubed cheese. Cover bottom of crockpot with red sauce, then add in meatballs. Smother meatballs in remaining sauce—covering them well. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Serve with pasta, sauce from the bottom of the crockpot garnished with parmesan

Two feels like 22, but we somehow came out alive.

Here's to three, and making it through the terrible twos.

Happy anniversary to my personal George Clooney.

*Linking up with Becky*
Currently around the Johnson Anderson house we are...

Recovering from a busy, busy, busy weekend. This weekend was seriously insane. I had a baby shower; my step daughter had a state qualifying track meet (she got a wild card spot for state!!); the twins had a zoo playdate; and Mark and I went to a black tie gala for the Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald museum—and that was just Saturday.
Sunday was a little more low-key, we only went to two festivals in two different neighborhood parks. I love that our neighborhood organizes fun afternoons in the spring. Plus, I don't ever have to worry my kid might starve while I have the Sunday Scaries...

Working in my container gardens like a fiend. I saw this on a walk two weeks ago, and I’ve been using it to encourage my own container efforts. So far nothing has died, but we are going out of town this weekend so my confidence is in the toilet. I just love how my neighbor used plants I wouldn’t think to put together to make such a vibrant color display. It is bold without being too cutesy. I have a tendency to go cutesy—I love daisies, zinnia, salvia and foxglove. Gimme all the pink, orange, purple and yellow flowers possible.

Gearing up for another fun trip to Maine in late May. I keep having visions of my last trip to the most northern point of the continental U.S. and am hoping to not lose my suitcase this time. Or the requirement of a full length mink coat.

Cheers to a great week!
