Surprise Party!

Yesterday I mentioned celebrating the hubsters birthday (which is tomorrow!). Well, I had a surprise golf theme party for him! He was expecting a meal I was making for just the two of us, and thanks to the help of some tricky neighbors he got a party!

party spread

28th hole(how old he is - choc.covered oreos

Arnold Palmer (sweet tea, lemonade, firefly vodka) & Sweet "Tee"

Practice Your "Chipping" (chips, salsa, & queso)

Sand Trap- cupcakes with crushed butterfinger cookies

Hole Markers - choc covered pretzels ~ in the back are Tiger (Woods) Prawns

Water Hazard - blue jello and coconut rum

Bucket of (Meat) Balls - see bottom of post for recipe

His "I'm surprised" smile, and my "OMG I only had one hour to lay all this out and make most of the food" smile. It was fantastic and we had a great time!

Now for the easiest meatball recipe, and everyone seemed to really like them!
1 can Smuckers Grape Jelly
1 can Hormel No Bean Chili
Frozen Bag of Mini-Meatballs (mine was a 60 count bag)

Turn crockpot on high and dump in jelly and chili, stirring occasionally, until the grape jelly and chili kind of dissolve into each other. Dump in the meatballs and cook on high for 2 hours, and low heat for 1, then they're done and delicious!
