First day after I quieted my job!
It feels really weird that I don’t have to go to work in the morning..
But I had a great time at home cleaning house, playing & walking with my boys,
and cooking lunch &dinner both meal for my hubby. ^-^
Tomorrow is my grocery day so I didn’t have a lot of ingredients to play with.
But I had a pack of ground turkey in my refrigerator so I made lunch and dinner both with it. 🙂
First, I made Turkey Meatball Spaghetti for lunch! ^-^
I used only half of ground turkey I have for this meal.
I had 1 whole artichoke, 1 can of fire roasted tomato, whole grain spaghetti, fresh basil and parmigiano.
So, why not Italian?
Even though it’s totally my style Italian. Hehe.
Into the ground turkey, I added garlic, onion, kalamata olive, lemon zest, basil, salt and pepper.
And mix it with your hand until it all sticks together.
Scoop out with a tablespoon and roll in your hand to make a ball.
Pan-fry with olive oil until golden brown outside.
Take out, set aside.
In the same pan add chopped garlic, onion saute for a minute.
And then add a little bit chardonnay, fire roasted tomato.
Mean while cook the spaghetti and blench artichoke.
(I peeled and cleaned artichoke to get the artichoke heart before blench)
Add meatballs to the tomato sauce, cook.
Add spaghetti and artichoke, combine well.
Stir in parmigiano and basil.
Plate, top with more cheese and basil as you desired!
The meatball texture was amazing!!
Without using any bread crumbs, flour or eggs, it was outstanding texture!!
And for dinner I made Chinese style. ^-^
I stir-fried with firm tofu, broccoli, chili, Chinese trinity (Garlic, onion and ginger).
I seasoned with soy sauce, honey and black pepper.
I also added a bit of chicken broth and shaoxing wine (Chinese rice wine).
Served with brown rice!
And serve with tofu egg drop soup! 🙂
It was delicious dinner! Hehe
Oh, and this was my snack..
I blenched broccoli to serve with the lunch but I forgot about it…
So, I ate as a snack between lunch and dinner.
With leftover Bibimbap sauce! lol
If you have leftover bibimbap sauce, use as a dipping sauce for your vegetables!
It is pretty gooooood~ <3
