I think sometimes we all feel like our blog isn’t “good enough”. Other bloggers get dozens, even hundreds of comments when we only get a few. Newer blogs than ours have four times as many followers. I admit that on some “down” days I wonder what I’m doing wrong, what could I do better.
Then one of my great readers leaves me a really sweet comment telling me how much they appreciate my blog. That they are cooking more often, or saving money. That they made one of my recipes for their family and even the picky eaters loved it. Those comments keep me going! I realize that even though I don’t have a million followers, I am still making a difference for a few cooks, and that is what it’s all about.
I was thrilled to find out that Heidi at Tried and True Cooking with Heidi, gave me a blog award. It helped me remember that the purpose for blogging isn’t about stats and numbers, it’s about sharing with other people. People just like us who are looking for ways to make life a little better, a little easier, a little tastier, a little more beautiful, or even a little funnier. If we do that for just one person, our blog has made a difference in the world. Thanks Heidi!!!
And because we have had a houseful of family over the weekend and I haven’t posted a recipe for three days, I thought I better give you one so you don’t all rise up in rebellion.
I actually made these meatballs for our little family Superbowl party. Then I promptly forgot to post the recipe. I just found the photo. They were fast and easy and really tasty. Everyone at the party loved them and I came home with an empty plate!
You can make them smaller for appetizers:
Or make them a little larger and serve them as a main dish with some green salad and a side dish. We like these Ranch Potatoes.
2-3 dozen meatballs, cooked (You can use frozen, or your favorite recipe. I used these meatballs.)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
2 tsp mustard
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Combine all ingredients and blend thoroughly. Heat and pour over meatballs.
