Touch of Nectar











Meatballs are one staple thing I keep in the freezer. I often add shredded zucchini or yellow squash to them in an attempt to healthy them up.

Then I was sent this sample.

Mostly made of soy. One of the suggestions on the label said it could be mixed with ground beef for a healthier burger.  Well now. Ground turkey was on sale this week for buy one get one free and I intended to make meatballs anyway… Perfect.

It certainly doesn’t look like much right out of the package.

I added two pounds of ground turkey and one egg. It made lots of meatballs!  I put 5 packages of 10 each in the freezer. Yay me!

The meatballs turned out very nicely. You can’t tell I added anything to them and they have a nice dense texture.

{November 4, 2011}   Bento from the Freezer Stash

This is what the kidling’s lunchbox looks like most days. (the bento box would have a lid on it)

Today’s bento lunch: bagel with strawberry cream cheese, fresh mangos, grapes, quails eggs, snow peas and goldfish crackers.

And mine is dinner leftovers and freezer stock.

Carrots and snow peas (there is green goddess dressing at work), pickled onions and green beans, cheese.

Turkey meatballs (from the freezer – perfectly thawed at lunchtime), edamame, cucumber salad and stir fried carrots and broccoli.
