here are my favorite pants.
and here is the pile of cut out pieces for the dress i am working on. it is less of a pile as of nap time this morning. i was able to get the back darts sewn, the front sewn to the back and one sleeve 80% done. it has been fun sewing something a little different for a change.
and per request here is the meatball recipe: it is based on the recipe in martha stewarts new cook book 'great foods fast'. i highly recommend it!
1pkg ground turkey
1/2 white onion finely chopped
large dash of milk (1/4-1/3 cup)
3/4 cup bread crumbs (i used italian style)
large can crushed tomatoes
3 or 4 cloves garlic
3-4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper
start the sauce in a large deep skillet. cook the garlic in the oil for a minute or two then add the tomatoes and herbs. let it simmer while you make the meatballs.
in a bowl add all of the ingredients listed under the meatball section above. mix it up really well and then form into balls adding them to the sauce as you go along. cover and cook for about 25 minutes stirring and turning the meatballs so they cook evenly. add the parsley to the sauce toward the end of the cooking time and serve over pasta.
this is so easy and its really tasty. i think a nice variation would be to spice up the sauce a bit with some red pepper flakes but i doubt the kiddo would like it as much :).
