Don't they Know I'm Weak? (& a recipe)



















Little League Baseball is selling chocolate bars again.

I couldn't say no.

So I didn't, I brought a box home. Merely opening the box will cost me $62.50. I'm trying to explain to myself that the goal is to sell all 50 bars, not eat them. My stomach, heart, and all that makes me a woman aren't falling for it.

The temptation is there everytime I walk into the kitchen, open the fridge, and see the box. It calls out to me you know. I can hear the bars, all 4 fantastic flavors of them--milk chocolate, almond, crispy, caramel, calling to me from their cool cave. With the weather in the 80's lately, I couldn't dream of leaving them to melt on the counter. That would be chocolate abuse.

I'm not the only one. Little DQ, so innocent, so young, I don't trust her as far as I can throw her. She has the same woman formula brewing within her, and I can see the yearning in her eyes. She is a chocoholic bud just waiting to blossom.

My mind won't let go of the chocolate so I have to do something drastic...like change the subject to MEATBALLS!

My friend Lisa served these appetizers at one of her parties and I fell in love. It's a cinch to make and they are so yummy and have a 'chinese-food-flair' to them. And bonus, it's a crockpot recipe!

Asian-style Meatballs
1 package frozen meatballs
16oz sweet and sour sauce
10oz crushed pineapple
1 red bell pepper
1 sm. white onion

Slice and dice bell pepper and onion [I'm not a huge onion fan, so I only used half a sm. one]. Place into crockpot with pineapple, sweet and sour, and meatballs. Heat on low for 3 hours, then on high for 1 hour, stir occasionally [just to mix up the meatballs].

    Those candy bars are the devil. I can never resist them, and every kid within five miles of me knows it. I have "sucker" written on my forehead. Or "weak" written on my big butt, one or the other.
