Healthy Choices

Checking "What's For Dinner" is getting to be a habit.* Anne knows what's cooking in the world of vegetables and she's up to the challenge of making healthy choices. Tonight we are having albondigas for our dinner; soup, with turkey meatballs and veggies, like zucchini, carrots, celery, onions, garlic and lots of fresh cilantro. Alex helped me roll the meatballs and chop some veggies. Then William and Maria kept me company while I chopped more vegetables and minced garlic cloves. I learned my recipe from my mom, and later I learned my abuela's method too, though I have not had the opportunity to use fresh venison, as she did. As with most recipes there are variations, but if I don't have fresh cilantro, coriander, or harina de maiz on hand, then I won't bother. In a few minutes I'll make a masa and prepare some hot corn tortillas to dip in our soup. ¡Sabroso! This recipe you'll have to learn in my kitchen.

Alas, Anna Banana does not keep her healthy blog any more, but fortunately she still answers the phone when I need good dinner ideas. This is a funny coincidence: I am making this albondigas recipe for dinner tonight! Love me a crazy-random happenstance!
