Comfort....

So I am saddened to tell you that I had 3 people show up to my Scentsy Open House yesterday and 2 of those people were kids! Ha, Thank You to Becky for being the only person to come! The weather, the cold and the snow really sucked. I had my table with new scents all lined up........
And yes, you know what I had to breakfast this morning and tomorrow also!
This sums up my party......it went down the drain!
So since I was down in the dumps and the weather was yucky I needed some comfort and what better than a recipe called Comfort Meatballs!! Of course this is a Pioneer Woman recipe.....
Ingredients:
1-½ - pound Ground Beef
¾ - cups Oatmeal (I used quick oats)
1 - cup Milk
3 - Tablespoons Very Finely Minced Onion
1-½ - teaspoon Salt
Plenty Of Ground Black Pepper, to taste

To Cook Meatballs:
1 - cup All-Purpose Flour
(coating For Frozen Meatballs)
Canola Oil (a couple tablespoons)

Sauce:
1 - cup Ketchup
2 - Tablespoons Sugar or Brown sugar
3 - Tablespoons Vinegar
2 - Tablespoons Worcestershire
4 - Tablespoons - 6 Tablespoons Onion (optional)
1 - dash Tabasco (I used Louisiana hot sauce)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Combine all meatball ingredients. Roll into medium-small balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place sheet in freezer for five minutes.After 5 - 10 minutes, remove meatballs from freezer and immediately dredge in unseasoned flour. Brown meatballs in canola oil until just brown. Place into a baking dish.Combine all sauce ingredients. Pour over meatballs and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes.
This is messy so have a towel ready..........
I served mine with Roasted Garlic Mash Potatoes.............
Cut the head off the garlic so the bulbs are exposed, then drizzle with EVOO and wrap in foil. Roast for 45min at 400 degrees, let cool then remove bulbs and mash with the potatoes. YUMM your house will smell divine!

These were so good they tasted like mini meatloaf bites! Definitely warm and comforting!

I then headed straight to the couch to watch New Moon!!
There is something about the snow and cold weather that makes me feel like cooking...tonight I am going to be real ambitious and make Beef Wellington! Yup, you heard me the real deal....cross your fingers for me that it turns out!

Hey Nicole! I made these meatballs last week! I really love The Pioneer Woman, I've started reading her blog. I thought the meatballs were great as well. :)

Adam and I also made the meatballs and potatoes for dinner....yes even though it's August! Comfort food is always good. The garlic potatoes were sensational! Thanks again for a wonderful recipe, they will both be going into the cookbook.
