Sunday Meal Prep: Rice Ball Fail!

Happy Sunday everyone! Thanks to Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers for their weekly link-up. I am back in full action with meal prepping and it as always saves my life with my crazy busy schedule and long commute.

Breakfast

Hard Boiled Eggs. The only ripe avocados at TJs were a bag of 4 small ones, so I put two in my salads and kept two to make avocado toast this week with the eggs.

Lunch

Chickpeas, tomatoes, cucumber, TJs Veggie 8 Mix, avocado, TJs grilled chicken and grapes.

Dinner

Roasted veggies for sides.

OK- so while running I brainstormed this dish. Healthier rice balls, rather than the fried ones you get at Italian festivals. I decided I could bake them in the oven!

So I cooked rice:

Cooked an onion, a can of diced tomatoes and ground turkey.

Then put them in muffin tins and sprinkled mozzarella on them.

Baked them at 350 for about 20 minutes.

When I went to put them in the dishes, they all came apart.

SO, next time. I definitely need to mix the rice and the meat/tomato mixture together. I need the rice to be less wet. I think I need to bind the mixture together with maybe panko breadcrumbs and an egg. This is what cooking is all about, trial and error. The dish will still be tasty but it’s just not as pretty as I expected! πŸ™‚

That is my meal prep for this week!
