This week it was Swedish Meatball time. I found this recipe a couple of years ago. It's really one of the easiest dishes to make (other than the time it takes rolling the balls). You can do it ahead of time and the sauce takes literally 5 minutes to put together. The recipe I linked to makes 2 batches so you can freeze half or serve it all if you're having a party. Nothing says party like a meatball. Cocktail meatballs, italian meatballs, greek lamb balls or these Swedish balls. I love them all.
I went with an easy simple dress, (yep, the same one I wore for my birthday) threw the hair up and added some fun earrings. A moscow mule and the party was on. The husband even started a round of 'Zou Bisou Bisou'.
What I wore:
Yes, apparently I need a spray tan ASAP.
This is the true color of my person and I don't think I've seen it in years.

What we drank:
I drank mine in a double old-fashioned since I don't have the super cool copper mug. It's on my list to get a few.
