Diabetic Cocktail Meatballs

These are good diabetic cocktail meatballs. For some reason my family frowns when I say it's spaghetti night.Maybe I've fixed spaghetti one too many times. Now, when followed with the word meatballs, I suddenly get cheers. Meatballs make people anticipate dinner or a fun party. At a party, I will usually go right for the meatballs. For the chef, it's an easy appetizer to fix and to put out. All you need is a cocktail napkin and a couple of toothpicks. Perfect really...
