Martha vs. Ree

In searching for the best meatball recipe, I pitted Martha Stewart and Ree Drummond against each other. I have friends who claim Martha hasΒ the bestΒ meatball recipe, but I love the Pioneer Woman and just knew her recipe had to be delicious as well. So I made them both to find out for myself! πŸ™‚

So what was my conclusion? Without question, I liked Ree’s recipe better. Martha’s were delicious and easy to make, but the Pioneer Woman just knows what’s up when it comes to comfort food. I took the PW’s meatballs to a dinner with friends and they were gone in a heartbeat. They are just that good. πŸ™‚

Totally unrelated to this post about delicious food…

20131102_101338On Saturday we got back from running errands and I noticed that my flower bed was in desperate need of weeding. Instead of changing into yard work clothes like a normal person, I just walked over and started pulling weeds while wearing my cute boots and scarf. Christopher thought that was pretty hilarious so he snapped this shot of me on his cellphone which I am now naturally sharing with you guys. πŸ™‚ By the way, it’s November and I still have three gerbera daisies blooming! I love it! πŸ˜€

As another aside, Christopher just told me that there is a $5 Groupon for a $10 Starbucks card!

starbucksThis is like gold for us. πŸ˜€ Unfortunately there is a limit to only 1 per person, but still! So click here and type “Starbucks” and for the next two days it should show up. Buy yourself that giftcard (or you can buy it for me, that’s fine too πŸ˜‰ ) and think fondly of me as you enjoy your Starbucks! πŸ™‚
