Well, it was one heck of a weekend... and by that, I'm wondering if I had a weekend? I had one day off, and I spent the time doing laundry, grocery shopping, and studying. But, I did get to chat with this girl, which made the whole weekend way more fun. She is a hoot and a half.
So, the title of this post... could refer to 2 things. Thing one is this:
What? You say no??? You don't think that's what I'm talking about? You think that since it's Monday, I should be blogging about the weekend? Okay... fine. You win.
Since my weekend was pretty much a bust, I decided I should talk about something that was not a bust. I made some Greek-style meatballs on Saturday, and they were amazing. Like, Ammon ate 7 of them and probably could have eaten more kind of amazing. And I'm a nice person, so I like to share. I should also let you know that these bad boys are very WW friendly... each meatball is only one point! That makes them an awesome option if you want to add a little something-something to a meal, but don't have a lot of points. Look how pretty they are, too!
Greek-style Turkey Meatballs
IngredientsOne and a half bunches of fresh spinach, chopped and wilted down, or 10oz chopped frozen spinach
One pound lean ground turkey
2 banana peppers, seeded and diced finely
One 8-oz package reduced fat feta crumbles
2 large eggs
What you do:1) Pre-heat oven to 425 F
2) Dump all of your ingredients into a mixing bowl. Remember to crack the eggs before you throw them in.
3) If you're like me, you forgot to add the seasonings. Add them now, to taste.
4) Make sure your hands are clean, then mix that stuff up! Using a spoon won't give you the right consistency, you gotta dig in with this one. It'll look about like this when you're through:
6) Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, or until they start getting a golden crust on top. Some of the cheese will ooze out too, and they'll look perfectly ooey-gooey. If you're feeling extra domestic, you can roast some fingerling potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice while your meatballs are cooking.
And there you have it, awesome meatballs in 30 minutes.
That's all I've got. Have a fantastic day, my friends!
