Slow Cooker Holiday Meatballs

The holidays are my favorite time of year. We love heading out on the weekends to attend holiday events, going on sleigh rides, attending tree lighting ceremonies, and of course visit with Santa. Every weekend is packed with fun festive family activities. It keeps us busy.

When serving appetizers it’s all about presentation. I love to find a pretty platter to serve my appetizers on and garnish it with rosemary or even fruit or orange wedges. I also like to set up an attractive buffet table that includes fresh sprigs of balsam and a big bowl of oranges.

Farm Rich has a variety of tasty snacks like Mozzarella Sticks, Toasted Ravioli and their newest products Loaded Potato Skins and Pepperoni Pizzeria Bites. I love to create some fun little dips to serve along with these products.
