Gluten-Free Meatballs

April 15, 2016

The weekend is almost here and I cannot wait! The weather here in California has been very nice

The show It's always sunny in Philadelphia should really be It's always sunny in California. I'm getting spoiled with this weather. Sometimes I asked Mitchell, why we haven't had any bad day. Sometimes you just want to have a rainy day and hangout in the house and watch movies all day! I guess no one is ever happy with what they have. 

 

It's supposed to be nice all weekend long here on the East Bay. On Sunday, I will be running a 5K with my neighbor's grandkids so the meatballs I made would be a great meal to eat the night before before the race. In high school, we would always have a "pasta party" the night or two nights before a big lacrosse game. I was always told that it helped energized athletes? True or False, it worked for our team. So, I'm going to do it for this race. I will let you know how it goes on Monday!  Wish me luck!
