Don't shop - use what you have first!

4 years ago

On a rainy day the last thing I wanted to do was go venture to the grocery store and figure out something to make for dinner. So being savvy I decided to scour the cabinets and fridge and see what I could come up with. I remembered we had frozen ground turkey and a bunch of produce I had to use before too late. I decided to go with a favorite of mine. Panzanella Salad. I used a frozen loaf of italian bread and let it thaw out. Then I used my stovetop grilling pan and brushed some olive oil on the bread and grilled it until crisp. The salad was simple..Romaine lettuce, plum tomatoes, red onion, mixed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I had some fresh mozzarella too so of course why not! I made my turkey meatballs just the same as if I would regular meatballs. Turkey meat tends to get very dry so I added some milk to the mixture of egg and breadcrumbs. The outcome---delicious!
