    All the delicious flavors of a tamale packed in a meatball.

    Mr Plain informed me this weekend that we will not being having a Super Bowl party.  I was unaware up until this point that we were.  I guess, the Packers lost this weekend. ( Mr Plain=big Packer fan)  If they did go to the Super Bowl, we were having a party?  Well, not really he tells me.  Too much work.
    But, it was still a possibility.

    I haven’t actually paid much attention to it all.  Football is not my thing.  But, a Super Bowl party with tons of appetizers and junk food? Wouldn’t be the worse way to spend an evening.

    How about these meatballs for a great appetizer for a party? Super Bowl or otherwise. You can just make them for dinner too..perfectly acceptable.  These meatballs are like little tamales rolled up in a ball.

    They have a great taste and you will find it tough to eat just one!
