I can’t ever seem to pick one recipe and stick to it. Tonight, I made stuffed zucchini using part of Kittencal’s Italian melt-in-your-mouth meatball recipes and part of Giada’s stuffed zucchini recipe. I mixed 1/2 of a package of ground turkey with: 1/2 grated yellow onion, 1 small crushed garlic clove, lots of grated pecorino romano cheese, 1/2 egg, maybe 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, chopped italian parsley, 1/4 tsp ish oregano, a good splash of milk, and S&P. I chilled it in the fridge just because I made the mix ahead of time. I tested the mix by frying a little bit on a skillet, which is something I should do every time. I scooped out the inside of 2 zucchini, stuffed them full of meat, and poured tomato sauce on top. Baked at 400 degrees for maybe 45 minutes. The meatball mix really was melt in your mouth. =) The zucchini was a little bland, next time I will cook it in boiling salted water for a few minutes or maybe just sprinkle S&P on it before stuffing. Salt fixes anything!
I made another attempt at ranch today, since I didn’t really like the last recipe I used that had fresh dill. I had made the exact same dip this summer using dried dill, and I remembered it tasting a lot better. Weird. Well today I used Joy the Baker’s ranch dressing, and I really really liked it. Good as a dip, and when I added some milk, good as a dressing.
