Mmmmeatballs. Love ’em. I made up this batch today, most of which I’ll freeze for quick, healthy protein when I need it. Meatballs – healthy? Yes, because these are baked turkey-bulgur meatballs. OMG that sounds revolting, seeing it written that way, but they’re actually absolutely delicious – tender and garlicky – and I figure about 65 cals each at an inch or so across. I’ll rename them when I post the recipe! You could make them smaller and include them in a brothy soup. Or make them as patties for sandwiches. Or put them in a lovely tomato sauce for pasta. Lots of options. The trick is not to pack them too much as you shape them or they’ll end up hard as hockey pucks. (Suz, you can go to town on that line; recipe posted in comments, below.)
Speaking of Suz, we had our Friday Morning Coffee date today, our usual blast! She has lots of stories about their new dog, Sir Digby, a Cavachon pup who is as cute and snuggly as they come. (Nathan and I visited the newcomer on Wednesday after school.) Puppies!
And babies! Have to sneak in this recent pic of my nephew Cooper, ‘cuz he’s so darn cute. He LOVES sweet potatoes and you can tell… How? Check out his little (orange) nose!
