 Meatball subs and potato salad

Some days lend for a little lighter meal, but planning and preparing is still involved. I can purchase meatballs on great sales and with coupons it’s even a better steal. So, when the freezer is home to a few bags of meatballs…subs are what’s for dinner!

I tend to just throw all my ingredients in the crockpot and cook on low most of the day. Super easy!
