Let's start with Jessica Seinfeld's Sweet and Sour Meatballs with egg noddles. Really, really good!

Ground turkey with hidden broccoli and a really delicious homemade sauce. I want to make it for sweet and sour chicken this week with some brown rice. There was not spewing of sauce, no burning of meatballs, but there was 1 thing: they were green! The broccoli definitely gave them a green tint.
In her recipe (all the recipes are now on my recipe page), it said to use a mixer to mix ingredients to form meatballs. This did not work. I am doing the hand method next time for sure. They were not really round meatballs. They were still delicious just not very binding. Maybe bread crumbs instead of 2 pieces soft whole wheat bread?

Later in the week, I opted for an easy Baked Ziti that was not nearly as healthy as the Jessica Seinfeld one that I had planned on making but was very, very yummy!

This recipe comes from Kraft Foods and is a family favorite! The Ray-man chowed on it. I chowed on it. Baby girl is still chowing on it! Not super healthy but paired with a salad it is not horrendous, oh who am I kidding?!?!? :)

Well, I hope I have redeemed myself Melissa! This week I am going for Seinfeld's Crockpot Lasagna and an easy spaghetti and meatballs concoction from Kraft foods! (Easy but carb loaded... oh well...)
