This little lady never stops going - so I'm always working on fueling her little body!
Lately, I’ve been making Daisy a super easy, super delicious meal that is just enough to keep those gourmet tastebuds stimulated without being too complicated.
On Sunday night, I prepare the meatballs: In a medium bowl, I combine one package of lean ground chicken with 2 cloves of grated garlic, a quarter of a red onion minced, 2 cups of panko breadcrumbs (or more), a whole egg and lots of salt and pepper. Sometimes I add sautéed kale if I have it on hand. I form small balls with my hand and cook in a cast-iron pan over medium heat in EVOO until golden brown on all sides. Then I let them rest on a plate covered with a paper towel to absorb excess oil. When cool, I package these up in Tupperware and keep them in the fridge for the week.
Every night for dinner, I heat up 5-10 meatballs with some marinara sauce (I love the organic tomato basil from Trader Joe’s) and sprinkle with grated parmesan before serving with a vegetable side like corn or edamame. This is Daisy’s little version of chicken parmesan and she LOVES IT!
The best part: takes five minutes to heat and plate every night - and you could turn it into an adult dinner with spaghetti in a pinch.
Buon appetito friends and babies ♡
