OK ladies–I actually made a semi-decent dinner tonight, and I wanted to share, because it was so.friggin.easy. I usually don’t get home until 6-6:30 and dinner usually has to be QUICK. If it takes to long to prepare or cook, I resort to munching on some crackers or whathaveyou, and then the boy wants crackers, and then we both don’t eat a very good dinner, because we ate crackers and blah, blah, blah.
Yesterday I went to the grocery after work, so I was home even later than usual, but this meal was SO quick and easy. I’m glad I made it rather than resorting to dino-shaped chicken nuggets.
Sweet & Sour Meatballs
3/4 Cup Ketchup
3/4 Cup Grape Jelly
Frozen Meatballs (regular, not Italian or Swedish)
Frozen Stir-Fry Veggies
OK, it’s as simple as this:
Throw your ketchup and grape jelly into your skillet. Mix it up over medium-high heat until the grape jelly melts on up into the ketchup. Throw in your frozen meatballs, stir, cover, and cook for about 20 minutes or so.
While the meatballs are cooking, cook up some rice.
Throw your veggies into the frozen meatballs, stir, cover, and cook for 5-10 minutes, or until the veggies are done.
Serve over rice.
Done and DONE.
