Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs

Let’s have a chit chat about the things you should not do post drinking:

1) You should definitely not write anything.

2) Especially, blog posts that aren’t meant to be funny. Typos are not funny when they are grammatical.  We went to college, let’s prove it.

3) sorry, I did that yesterday.

4) You should not give your girlfriend’s phone number to stranger bartenders who *MIGHT* turn out to be surprising in the bedroom. Might meaning, also could be a total snoozer.

5) You should not make inappropriate jokes about a bartender and a cherry pitter. (sorry, did that too.)

6) You should not, under any circumstances, order queso. (guilty)

7) You should not, order that 5th margarita. 4 is fine, 5 is dumb. (yeap.)

8) Never pause between the words “Come” and “Over”. ever.

9) You maybe actually should do all of those things, minus the writing, with a recording device handy.

But, the good news is, today I have a recipe for you that is so easy, you actually could throw this together after your 5th margarita.

Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs



In a medium bowl, mix together bread crumbs, the onion, egg, ground mustard, garlic, parsley and salt and pepper. Add the turkey and mix until combined. Roll the meat mixture into 2 inch balls.  Place on a lined baking sheet, and bake in the oven at 350 for 20-25 minutes, until cooked all the way through. For the tomato sauce, saute the onions and garlic in a high sided pan for 5 minutes, until soft.  Add the tomatoes and sauce, as well as the cayenne, crushed red pepper, garlic salt, dried oregano and thyme.  Simmer on medium low for 20 minutes. Bring a salted pot of water to boil and cook the pasta.  Toss in the sauce, add the meatballs, and serve.
