Ultimate Party Meatballs

Our daughter loves meatballs.  It’s one of her favorite foods to eat.  Maybe because they’re a “mini” food, I don’t know but if meatballs are on the menu, she’s a happy girl.  Last May when her BFF graduated from high school, at her open house party there was a slow cooker full of meatballs.  Amber was in heaven, as a matter of fact she was talking about those meatballs all summer (yeah, she needs some more extra curricular activities apparently).
