Corn on the Cob!!

Thanks for the garden grown corn Grams and Papa!!! We loved it. 

 It's perfect for teething babes. 

We added it to our homemade Chinese food, since we had no baby corn :) 

PS. We do eat from actual plates, only the kids have plastic ones, this was Emma's meal. 
Also, if I haven't given you the recipe for these turkey meatballs, here it is. It's yummy. I love it, the kids love it, and it's easy and a little different.

Chinese Style Turkey Meatballs

Yield: 24 meatballs


1 pound ground turkey

2 scallions, very finely chopped

1/2 cup very finely chopped cilantro

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1/2 cup fine, dry bread crumbs (unseasoned)

1 egg, lightly beaten

Sweet Soy Dipping Sauce:

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

2 or 3 slices fresh ginger smashed with the side of a heavy knife


To make the meatballs:
Heat the oven to 400.
Gently mix together the ingredients then form meatballs by rolling tablespoon-sized scoops between your palms.
Arrange on a lightly oiled or parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, until well-browned and cooked through.
Serve with toothpicks for dipping.

To make the dipping sauce:
In a small pot, stir all the ingredients together over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves.
Simmer 3 or so minutes, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens a bit.
Fish out the ginger and serve in small cups for dipping.
