A different kind of Turkey Day

In the mood for a healthy & filling meal?

Turkey is your new best friend. 

I had a strike of inspiration and happened the have the right ingredients to create something super tasty! 

Turkey Meatballs and Veggies

What you'll need:
  • 1 pound ground turkey 93/7
  • 1 can stewed tomatoes
  • spinach
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup red onion
  • olive oil
  • cumin
  • coriander
  • 1 egg
  • teriyaki sauce 
Chop the onion and garlic and throw them in a sauce pan with some olive oil. Add the can of stewed tomatoes, spinach, salt and pepper. The spinach should wilt. Keep this on medium low heat. 
Heat your oven to 325. 
In a large mixing bowl, break the turkey into pieces and add the egg. Get ready to use your hands!! Work the mixture until the turkey is completely broken down. Add some salt, pepper, coriander, cumin, a few splashes of teriyaki sauce and mix well. 
Heat a pan and add some olive oil. 
Roll the turkey into small balls and cook them in the pan until light brown on all sides and almost completely cooked through. 
When they're done, place them in an oiled baking dish and spoon the tomato mixture over the top. Place in oven and bake for about 10 minutes. 
This is a well balanced meal, super filling, you'll have tons of leftovers and it's guilt-free!!

love love

As seems to be the norm, inspiration struck last night as I was supposed to be studying for a plants & people test. Luckily for me, plant biology seems to be my strong suit and that test was amazingly simple. I'll call the whole deal a success- I discovered some amazing styles for spring (though it's like, 5 months away) reviewed a little information about plant waxes, and had a lot of fun.

Late Night Styling

It's Friday night and instead of throwing on my usual mini skirt, drinking a little tequila and fighting off all the boys with my friends at the bars, I've decided to stay in and work on some styling. I just want to add that I feel amazing lately, and I think I've brought that out in my outfits <3

ok, so I still put on a mini skirt tonight, for the sake of the outfit. yes, I did turn an old choir t-shirt into a muscle shirt, BEFORE you start talking about how weird this is remember: you're young, you own cute bras, you have a great body, it's alright to be a little crazy every now and then. besides, I cut the shoulders in a bit so I don't have awkward wings on my shoulders. 

I can't wait until it gets warmer out. I will be utilizing pastels and shorts SO MUCH this season. 

I heart my blazer, I would wear it every single day if it got warmer than 30 degrees where I live. that skirt has a sparkly gold lace print, it's like making slightly skanky classy.

metal detail shirt, booties and blue blazzzzer 

sans blazer

I'll clean that mirror someday, I'll have better pictures someday, I'll post regularly someday. 

Have a great night lovies, I'm feeling particularly creative lately so I will have more posts SOON
