Turkey Meatballs + A Weekly Menu

Happy Monday!

From now on, I’m going to share a weekly menu with you all for dinner-time inspiration. I love looking at others meal plans, but I sometimes feel like they’re unrealistic or too complicated for week night recipes. So, my goal here is to share my real-life menu and hopefully provide you with ideas for your own. Please share your feedback or other ideas with me!

Weekly Menu

Monday: Spaghetti All’Arrabiata with Turkey Meatballs (recipe below)

Tuesday: Chicken Avocado Enchiladas 

Wednesday: Grilled Chicken with Asian Quinoa Salad

Thursday: Spinach Turkey Burgers with Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Friday: Homemade Pizza

The above ingredients are the basis of the turkey meatballs. I usually add in a few more spices like Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes too. Then, just mix it all together and form little balls (like below) and stick them in the oven!
