Transition In The Kitchen•
Posted on February 27 2023
I will admit~ I am not the chef in my house. However~ I love good food and I am somewhat particular. This is one of those weeks where we may be out three nights due to sports. So, my husband and resident chef, decided to whip up something in the crock pot that did not suit my dietary preferences but rather his and our sons… so I was on my own to come up with a meal that will serve as a few dinners (perhaps a lunch too if I am lucky) for this last week of High School Hoops.
This is a simple recipe but it’s so delicious and if you are dairy free you can make just as I did. If you are vegan or gluten free just a couple swaps and you could make this easily to suit yourself. I started with 1.5 lbs baby potatoes (admittedly my faves are the tri colored from Trader Joe’s) I diced them up and drizzled generously with olive oil~ sprinkle of sea salt, garlic powder and onion salt. Spread evenly on a sheet pan or in a baking dish and pop in oven for 20 min at 425. Next, dice up red bell pepper~ onion and broccoli (I used two generous heads bc I love broccoli). In a second bowl make your turkey meat balls. I used 1lb ground turkey~one egg~ Panko and plain breadcrumbs (I eyeball) and the same seasoning as above. Add veggies to pan with potatoes and drop meatballs throughout. Bake another 20 or so minutes until meatballs are cooked through.
I will get 4-5 servings from one sheet pan so this is also a great meal to whip up when having a couple friends over or for the family. This is a transitional meal for sure. Still craving the roasted vegetables for winter time but can see grilled vegetables working for this too and fresh corn on the cob #yum I could also see changing up the seasonings and omitting the meatballs for a fabulous vegan meal with black beans as the protein and maybe some chili~lime seasoning #doubleyum
I’m a fraction of on the go as I once was… time has seemed to slow down just a bit but these long sports seasons make meal time tough. I’m much happier when I’ve prepped ahead of time. There is only so much pizza a family can eat lol. What makes cooking even more fun for me is having great cooking essentials~ gorgeous bowls especially… but even my baking sheet is a soft robins egg blue to match my coffee maker and toaster~ makes my happier to be in the kitchen.
We have expanded our kitchen ware lines in the shop so we have you covered from oven mitts~ to cheese boards and lots in between… spring is almost sprung and I’m here for it. xoxo~ Kacey
