Honey Fire Crock Pot Meatballs

I see articles titled “The Lazy Girl’s Guide to [natural hair/makeup/fashion/etc.]”  all over the internet these days. As a lazy girl, I appreciate that there are people out there interested in helping me be more productive AND take more naps. I love naps. As I’ve mentioned in a prior post, I jam-pack my Sunday routine in order to not have to do things like assemble meals or iron clothes during the week. Since laziness (post-church naps) can sneak in even here from time to time, I am all about simplifying this routine when I can. Washing brights with darks helps. As does avoiding work outfits that require an iron. A huge time-saver is my crock pot. Consider this post the The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Meal Prep: Use. Your. Crockpot! That’s really it. I throw my protein and sometimes even my veggies into the crock, set it and take a nap attack the rest of my to-do list. 🙂 These meatballs come together super easily and are moist and flavorful thanks to the sauce, which is comprised of honey, the type of hot sauce you’ll find in my bag, and a few other ingredients. I prepped these along with my garlicky green beans for lunch this week. You can serve these meatballs with rice, veggies, or whatever you like. They are great on their own as appetizers.I hope you’ll give them a try and love them.

Let me know in the comments if there’s anything else you’d like to see made in a crockpot. Thanks for reading!

  1. I love an excuse to take a nap too. Love the way your write. I NOW KNOW what we are having for supper – and to tell you the truth, I have been sick of everything I am cooking – but can hardly wait to make this! I love the crock pot too – and that’s no crock! (corny, eh?) Have a beautiful week.

  7. […] Honey Fire Crockpot Meatballs: These are sweet, spicy, and super easy because they’re made in a crock pot. I recommend serving them up alone with toothpicks or tongs for grabbing or with little buns and lettuce to make sliders! […]
