Monday’s Morsels- Itsa meatball!!

I found the recipe for these meatballs today. I was watching the Today show & made the mistake of checking my BMI….after which I began searching Weight Watchers recipes…after which I ate a cupcake….don’t judge!

These meatballs are super yummy. And they’re pretty damn healthy. Which is always good. They also only require 1 bowl to prepare them in. Always a bonus!!  I paired them with some of the Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain Brown Ready Rice. I love that stuff. And it takes 90 seconds in the micro. Jackpot!!

So, give these tasty meatballs a try! Won’tcha?!
