Are you ready for the summer?

Meatballs are great.

I hardly ever make them, but when I do, they are always a crowd-pleaser. They are fun to make because you get to use your hands. They are also extremely hard to mess up, so they are a fantastic no-fail dinner. Especially when you are having company.

Last week, Alex and I had my parents over for dinner to talk wedding. It was really fun to cook for them, although it felt very adult. I'm glad that the spaghetti and meatballs were a hit! I'm not sure where I got this recipe for meatballs or if I just made it up based on many different online searches, but they are delicious!
