Today I have some delicious meatballs for you. These spinach & turkey meatballs are incredibly easy, super versatile, and very flavorful.
But first, other things.
Terry and I enjoyed some banging fajitas last night at a local Mexican restaurant,Tequila. Does anyone else live in a town that has a Mexican restaurant on every corner? It’s pretty common here in SC.
We got the fajitas for two, which comes with two plates of rice, beans, lettuce, sour cream & guac, and one skillet pilled high of meat (we chose chicken) and vegetables. Can I just say that refried beans and Mexican rice are the equivalent to bananas and peanut butter or ketchup and fries? So dang good! When I get fajitas I usually forgo the tortillas in order to save room in my belly to clean my plate.
After dinner my friend Kelly and I went to an event hosted by Siggi’s Yogurt for RDs and dietetic students in Charlotte.
We were treated to a yogurt bar at our arrival. On the bottom I had pepipitas, hemp seeds, chia seeds, granola, then a nice blob of vanilla yogurt, with a sprinkling of blueberries. There were a ton of other delicious toppings too.
^Siggi was standing right in front of Sarah in this picture!!
Siggi talked about his history and how the business started. In short, he wanted to bring the yogurt he loved from back home in Iceland to America. The yogurt totes having more protein than sugar and minimal ingredients. It really is quite delightful. My favorite part of the presentation was watching him teach us how to make yogurt. I’m taking on that challenge soon!
I also loved just chatting with him about his experiences in America compared to Iceland. Such a cool guy. Read more about Siggi’s at their website!
In other random news I found the secret to a good hair day: blow dry my hair. I know, earth shattering news. TBH, I am super lazy about beauty rituals and go to bed with my hair wet half the time. However, seeing as my hair is thin and take 1 minute to dry, I think I should dedicate myself to the dryer.
Now, onto these delicious turkey meatballs. They may be the easiest meatballs you’ve ever made.
Spinach and Turkey Meatballs
Serves: about 22 meatballs, depending on size.
3/4 pound lean ground turkey
1 cup fresh spinach
2 slices bread, whole grain preferred
1 tsp salt
2 tsp italian seasoning
1/2 tsp black pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Spray with cooking spray or adequately oil a baking pan.
2. Place bread in oven until to well toasted. Once toasted, pulse in a food processor until it resembles fine crumbs. Pour crumbs into a bowl.
3. Pulse spinach leaves in food processor until chopped finely. Transfer to bowl with bread crumbs. Add all other ingredients to the bowl.
4. Using your hands, mix together all ingredients until well combined. Roll meatballs (about an inch thick) by hand and then place on pan.
5. Bake for 15 minutes.
6. Remove from oven and serve.
So simple. So delicious. They are already on my meal plan for next week! I’m thinking meatballs subs…
Anyways, that’s all of the randomness I have for one day. You guys tell me–
