Went for a healthy alternative to beef meatballs. Decided go ‘Turkey’. To boost the taste of the bland one, I included the following spices and ingredients:
Celery (finely chopped)
Carrot (finely chopped)
Bell pepper (finely chopped)
Grape tomatoes (chopped)
Red wine vinegar
Tried to keep a fine balance. Thus, I forego frying the balls and decided to bake at a temperature of 400 degrees fahrenheit for approximately 20 minutes. With a drizzle of olive oil, my balls were ready for a preheated oven.
On the side, a slightly sweet and sour sauce simmered.
The turkey balls soaked up all the sticky and delicious flavors of the slightly sweet and sour sauce. The result was super-moist turkey balls that made my taste-buds jumped for joy.

I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food.
Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
