Turkey/Rice Balls, Friday!!

I am so glad its Friday!! Last night was another Body Step night. After, I did a little shopping (one last ditch attempt to find a new dress for my cousins beach wedding this weekend) and then came home to make dinner. I was in the mood for meatballs, but didn't want to make the traditional spaghetti and meatballs so I tried something new. Dinner started with sugar snap peas:


And finally Turkey and Rice Balls:

1 package ground turkey (lean- about 1 1/3 pounds)
1/3 cup parm cheese
1/2 cup cooked rice
1/2 an onion chopped
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp thyme
1 jar spaghetti sauce


Mix all ingredients except spaghetti sauce. Form 12 round balls and place on a cookie sheet. Turn oven onto broil and place meatballs on top shelf of oven for approximately 14 minutes (or until no longer pink). Place turkey rice balls in spaghetti sauce heating on the stove top. Serve with additional parm sprinkled on top!

I thought they turned out pretty well but Josh LOVED them. I probably ate about 3 1/2 turkey meatballs and he ate the rest! I'm asking for his metabolism for my birthday haha. Any good weekend plans?

Hey Erica,
I am pretty sure it was round 34 - Josette told me it was the newest round. It is different; you do so many things opposite from other rounds. It is like retraining your brain - I know what to do but my body is so used to the other way. I could not believe how tough the workout was - it totally kicked my booty!!! Of course I love it - Turbo ROCKS. Oh, and the Turbo section is CRAZY, what is it like 5 minutes long :)

I started Going for Gold DVD, teaches correct posture and how to execute punches, kicks, signature moves. Awesome so far!! My instructor (Josette) offered to help me out with anything I need for training. She is actually the rep. for Turbo Kick in my area - she will be presenting the Master Class that I attend to get my certification. She was so thrilled when I told her last night that I am going to train to teach - she is looking for more instructors around here, I guess it is kind of dry.

I didn't know you were a shortie like me. I guess your comment picture looks tall. I have no idea what that means! Anyway, yay for shortness.
