So glad that I took the time to play with my balls (well, the seasoning of my ground turkey). Balls never tasted so good. I desired turkey balls that were firm on the exterior and super-moist and succulent on the interior.

And, I think I achieved same. You see, ground turkey is somewhat bland and normally requires the input of spices, flavors, and other ingredients in order to perk up and gain a mouth-watering dish. Raided my pantry and refrigerator and added the following finely chopped ingredients: a ‘holy trinity’ of sort.

  • celery
  • carrot
  • onion
  • garlic
  • parsley
  • scotch bonnet pepper

Along with:

  • salt/black peppers
  • eggs
  • ketchup
  • paprika
  • vinegar
  • Panko bread crumbs

Folded sauteed assorted veggies in turkey along with other ingredients. Balls were made and sprinkled with olive oil. These were baked in oven for 15 to 18 minutes at 375 degrees fahrenheit.


Balls were then simmered a sweet and sour sauce made up of :

  • vinegar
  • ketchup
  • sugar/honey
  • pinch of salt
  • corn starch

They absorbed all the mouth-watering flavors. Balls  were then garnished with finely chopped parsley.

Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. 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.
