Of course we improvised it. Maria dug into the meat, egg, bread crumb mess.
Krista made vegetables.
Jenny took this artful photo. She can even make ground meat look good. Look at that flying oregano. Amy donated her apartment and cooking utensils.
Eight of us scrunched around this little coffee table in Amy's living room to laugh and eat. Life should always come with too many friends and too few chairs.
Turkey Meatballs for a Crowd:
3 pounds ground turkey meat
a bunch of unseasoned bread crumbs
a clove or two of garlic
dried basil, oregano and parsley
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Use your hands, but make sure they're clean. The consistency should be goopy, thick enough to roll into a ball and not fall apart. Roll meat into golf-ball-sized balls. Turn a burner on to medium high and heat up some oil. Pan fry the meatballs until they are brown on the outside. Check one or two to make sure they're done. Serve with spaghetti and meat sauce.
