Day Two

Well, I lazied out today and made Turkey Meatballs and Spaghetti. Chicken Marsala tomorrow I promise!!! :)But I don't do meatballs that often and I do have a good recipe that lots of people love(one of my few recipes that really is mine that I made up)

Turkey Meatballs (obviously you don't have to use turkey, I just do because we've been doing turkey for over a year now and we can't tell the difference)

2lbs Ground Turkey
1 egg
1/4-1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
half a handful of Oatmeal
3 Tbl minced onions
1 1/2 Tbl garlic powder
1/4 shredded Parmesan cheese
1/3 can tomato soup
1 Tbls Worcestershire sauce
Mix together
Take pictures of your cute kids through the window thinking how adorable and sweet they are playing. :)

With a small ice cream scoop put balls on very well greased pan. Remember these shrink so you can do a ton on one pan. I had two cookie sheets stuffed.

Notice said cute daughter is covered in water/mud/dog food from playing in dogs water dish. Do a quick impromptu bath. While bathing said daughter, said cute son steals your camera and takes millions of pictures/videos of this kid.......

Cook Meatballs for ten to 12 minutes at 425. I do 7 then rotate top to bottom and another 5. Because i don't like to do two shifts. I made spaghetti with Prego (my favorite sauce) for Jared and the kids and spaghetti squash for me. My family enjoys spaghetti squash I just didn't have enough for all of them. :)

Ruby & Lincoln showing me they love eating meatballs.

We used half the meatballs and still had enough for two lunches. Then I froze the other half. You just put them straight in the freezer still on the cookie sheet for a quick freeze (like 20 minutes) Then put them in a gallon size bag and you have them for whenever you need a couple. We use them for sandwiches, quick lunch, add BBQ sauce. They are nice to have around.
Hope you're not bored with my cooking challenge. :)
And just for fun if you are still with me, in preschool today we did the letter H and one kid brought in HAIR. So fun. We all took pictures, and now you all know how hot I would look as a platinum blonde with long awesome curls. :)

Loved the post and that I'm not the only one who has to stop making dinner a zillion times b/c of their kid.
We love turkey meatballs and I still need to give spaghetti squash a go.
