Bourbon Whiskey Meatballs and Game Time Recipes

It’s one of my favorite times of year, the leaves are changing, it’s time to start decorating and firing up the oven with all the delicious bake goods! And the men in my house love this time of year too…it’s Football Season! Whether we are cheering on our local High School team or watching the NFL on Sunday afternoon, we all love the game time food!

To make our Game Day a little easier, we received some cool new products! The Crock Pot Triple Dipper has three 1 quart bowls that keep your food nice and warm. It comes with a carry case too, gotta love that! Next up on the Game Day table is the Oster Party Jar Blender, perfect for mixing smoothies, shakes or even alcoholic beverages! And last, but not least, is the Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte Maker. This little baby is pretty neat! If you are coffee latte lover, you must get one of these…if not, like me…you are going to LOVE your other drinks blended in it.

In our Crock Pot Triple Dipper, we served Bourbon Whiskey Meatballs, Honey Barbecue Wings and Supreme Pizza Dip. The Meatballs were a new recipe {see below}, and we all enjoyed them!

Using the Oster Party Jar Blender, I whipped up some Apple Pie Shakes to enjoy during the game.

Just like Starbucks, but a loss less expensive, you can have your Pumpkin Spice Latte at home while you are enjoying the game! While I love my Starbucks Chai Tea Latte as much as the next gal, I don’t always love the price! So for a few years now, I have been buying Chai Tea Latte Concentrate at Walmart, mixing it with milk and heating it in the microwave. And although it’s delicious, and one of my favorites, it just isn’t the same without the froth on top…now, I can have that! The Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte Maker not only makes a wonderful latte, it also heats and froths your tea…it’s brilliant, my friends!

Finishing out our Game Day table, are some paper football plates and napkins that I found at Walmart, and the napkin holder is a canister that I covered with scrapbook paper. Fun…and easy!
