Healthy Solutions Spice Blend Challenge...

Whose up for a challenge...a Healthy Solutions Spice Blend Challenge that is...I am and I am extremely excited about it too.  I was graciously given a packet of Healthy Solutions Spice Blend - Ultimate Burger and a short list of rules.  When my packet came in the mail it was like the amazing birthday gift you wait for as a kid from your grandmother in Florida.  I opened the envelope with such care and could not wait to get my packet open for a little taste.  The creative juices started flowing and low and behold T's BBQ Meatballs were created, eaten for dinner and enjoyed tremendously.  Wish me luck on my tasty creations...and make them for yourself, they are sure to be rewarding for your taste buds.
