I've been working on some game day Super Bowl dishes that I will be bringing you over the next couple of weeks. My daughter would be so proud of me using ground turkey. My husband has other thoughts on using turkey. He promised to try a bite. I had a piece on the fork and he felt that was too big. He took a tiny little piece to try it and you know what he really like the turkey meatballs.
Olive also like the meatballs while my back was turned she grabbed one of the meatballs off the plate. Bill was not doing a very good job of watching her but at least I was done photographing them. She has been hanging out in the kitchen since then. I would have put her outside but it was 3 degrees out.
