I Love (Meat) Balls
I like balls.
Meatballs! Come on guys, stop being dirty.
Libby and I made the most delicious sun dried tomato basil meatballs for dinner tonight, courtesy of a recipe from Janetha over at Meals and Moves. Holy yum is all I can say. We followed the recipe exactly, except for three tiny substitutions. We used extra lean ground turkey, instead of plain ole’ lean, and we didn’t use parmesan cheese because Libby can’t have dairy and there wasn’t a dairy-free option at the grocery store tonight (lame). And then we forgot to pick up chicken broth to keep the balls moist while they were in the oven, so we just used water. They. Were. So. Good.
I don’t want to repeat the entire recipe since it’s posted on Janetha’s blog, but I will share the photos I took from our little adventure. As you know, I hate cooking, so Libby was quite impressed with my burst of productivity when I kept pushin’ her to move along so we could cook up a storm. While the recipe isn’t difficult in the slightest, I’m still proud of myself for this little creation. I will definitely be making these again.
Oh, and just so you know, I totally blasted Glee from my iTunes the entire time and sung my little lungs out. That makes the cooking experience 10 times better. In case you were wondering.
Let the journey begin…
As you can see, I piled the balls on top of some pasta. Gluten-free pasta, to be exact. Libby monitors her gluten intake and it’s all we had in the house, so it works. I piled the side of my plate with peas. Yum.
I have plenty of leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch, too! I can’t wait for my co-worker’s to smell this deliciousness (muahaha!)
Do you have a favorite meatball recipe I should try? Or any favorite recipe I should try (simple increases your odds of me actually cooking it).
