Apples!

I was doing some work in my yard today, glanced up at one of my apple trees, and check out what I saw!!!




































Three years after planting these trees, I am SO excited to see my first apples!

Turkey Meatballs

I made these tonight.  They are becoming one of my favorite things to eat on this crazy new diet I am on.  Full of flavor and they make a great snack!


INGREDIENTS
1 lb. ground turkey
1/2 c. onion, diced
1/4 c. almond flour
1 t. arrowroot powder
2 t. garlic, minced
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 T. fresh basil, chopped
1 t. dried oregano
2 t. fresh parsley, chopped
1 T. Parmesan cheese (optional, if needing dairy free)
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until thoroughly mixed.  Form into 1 inch balls and place in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.  Bake for 10-15 minutes.  Transfer meatballs to sauce pan of tomato/spaghetti sauce to finish cooking, approximately 20 minutes.  Makes about 40 balls.
