Cashew Chicken Meatballs


We have been some really busy Bees these days.  Taking on the community garden plot has been a lot of hard work.  However, it is finally starting to look  like progress is starting.  I am so happy that the lovies get so much pleasure out of just being out in nature.  The weeds have been no joke though!  It looked like a tiny lawn between each row after the first few days of rain. 🙂 I have to admit when I started weeding in the rows I had to really watch to make sure I was pulling the right things!  Haha!

Mike and I were actually able to manage a little “get away” to see George Lopez preform on Friday.  We had a really great time and it was so nice to get away together for a night.  It is so important to still have “dates” with your spouse.  It always gives us a little extra reminder of why we first got together.  It feels wonderful to just laugh and focus on one another for a little bit now and then.  It also made it that much sweeter to go home and eat up the lovies from missing them. 🙂

Now to the main event.  🙂  Originally I had first thought to share the original Cashew Chicken recipe but I decided to shelf it a few months ago.  Then just recently I was tap dancing through Pinterest and came across the idea to make a meatball version.  I have here my own version of what I felt made me think of Cashew Chicken.  I hope you enjoy. 🙂

  1. You know I LOVE the meatballs. I’d vote for every meal rolled into single bites if I had my way. Yay for date night! Was George Lopez awesome? He’s so hysterical. You’ve given me so much in this one post. Community garden. That sounds great, but I do remember how much work a garden can be. As kid’s we were bribed to pull weeds…in turn we got to choose which carrot we wanted to pull, or blueberries to pick 🙂 Whew. We really need to have coffee together. xo

    • Aww Libby thank you! I think you will definitely like this one. Yes George Lopez was SO awesome! We had a great time. It is true the garden has been a ton of work, but so much fun. 🙂 We have to grab a chat and a sip next time you are in the area! XOXO
