Day 30- Cook, Craft, Create: December 2012

The penultimate day of Cook, Craft, Create: December: 2012 and I’ve got a easy dinner recipe for you that I whipped up for the family – turkey meatballs. I made this recipe super easy by using a jar of sauce that I spruced up with extra herbs and some bacon for flavour – but you can add your own ragu or jar of favourite sauce. My husband isn’t overly keen on turkey mince, but he really enjoyed these – so did my son – there was nothing left on his plate! Always a good sign in my book :D
