A few days ago, I brought these meatballs to a friend's Bridal Shower. As always, I come up with a fabulous idea, an amazing idea, and then whenever making it for others, it falls short. But they are still pretty darn good. I was inspired by some jalapeno poppers with cranberry sauce that we had at Tommyknocker's Brewery. I tried to put balls of cheese in the middle of these meatballs, hoping the cheese would ooze out when you bite into it. Instead they oozed out as they baked. So I had to mix the cheese into the meat, taking out the wow factor. Oh well.
Back to the shower. Like all showers, this one was full of excitement, well-wishes and some unexpected twists. One game we played was the Newlywed Game. It reminded me of my own bridal shower from last year. The Newlywed Game involves the bridesmaids emailing the groom and having him answer certain questions. Then at the shower, the bride has to try and guess what her future husband said. Well, I asked, and my friend still had the email she sent. Here are some of my husband's best responses.
