March Meatball Madness
March Madness, an American college basketball competition, is celebrated in office betting pools and beer-soaked bars across the U.S. Although I am firmly an NFL football girl — and a Fug Madness girl — I’m also a girl that cannot resist alliteration.
So, along with my husband Dave (tall enough for basketball but really more of a reader) and some paleo friends, I shared paleo meatball recipes throughout the month, along with a little sprinkling of basketball lingo and slang because I am also a sucker for specialty vocabulary. Go ahead! You can call me a baller.
In addition to the new meatball recipes I rolled out (see what I did there?!), I also shared a special edition of Tuesday 10 that makes the case for meatballs as the Franchise Player of your plate, explained the science behind meatball mixing methods, and offered an assist from Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Rice. Alley-oop!
