Today’s Menu: Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Water Chestnuts, and White Rice

 

 

After a light breakfast I took Mom up to Kroger so she could pick up a few items and while there they had Coffee Makers on sale so I picked one up for Mom and Dad for Christmas. They’ve needed a new for a long time. I’ve never Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 010been a Coffee drinker, Green Tea is about it. I also stopped by McDonald’s so she could pick their Breakfast up. Outside it was in the 50’s and cloudy early, as day went on rain moved in. We have cooler weather moving in for the weekend they say, high in the 30’s Saturday. The hospital called and I going Tuesday morning for my finger surgery. Shouldn’t been in there but about 20 minutes. I’m having the cyst removed and they have to do it at the Hospital due to possible infection. Anyway not much else going on today. For dinner tonight something new, I prepared Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Water Chestnuts, and White Rice.

 

 
Wanted something different tonight so it’s Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Water Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 002Chestnuts, and White Rice. I had seen the Sweet and Sour Meatballs on an episode of Pioneer Woman so I thought I would do a version of that for dinner. Wasn’t sure what to have with it so I raided the pantry and came out with the Pineapple, Water Chestnuts, and White Rice. I had the Sugar Snap Peas in a container in the fridge. I used Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs, La Choy Sweet Sour Sauce, Kroger fresh Sugar Snap Peas, 1 can of Dole Pineapple Tidbits, 1 can of Sliced water Chestnuts, and Uncle Ben’s White Rice.

To prepare the Meatballs; I heated up a medium size skillet on medium heat (sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray). Added the Turkey Meatballs. The meatballs are precooked so all you have to do is reheat them. So I added then to the skillet and topped them with La Choy Sweet Sour Sauce. I let them simmer, turning them several times, for 15 minutes; until they were heated through. Se the skillet aside, putting the lid on the skillet.

I then took another medium size skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Heated this on medium heat also. As the skillet was heating I opened up the Sliced Water Chestnuts, draining the can of all the liquid. I then opened up the can of Dole Pineapple Tidbits, I drained the juice from the can and reserving it in a small bowl. The Sugar Snap Peas come in a sealed plastic container, just cut it open and gave the Peas a quick wash with water.

 

 
So the skillet is heated and I first add the Water Chestnuts, they take the longest to get done. Cooked them for aboutSweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 006 10 minutes, stirring often. I then added Sugar Snap Peas, these don’t take long at all. Stirring the Peas and Chestnuts together. I turned the heat down to low and added the Pineapple Tidbits and the reserved Pineapple Juice. The amount of juice you add is up to your preference. I added about 1/4 of the juice. Continued cooking for another 5 minutes; turned the heat off and put the lid on the skillet. To prepare the Uncle Ben’s White Rice is the easy part. It comes in a microwavable package; just heat for 90 seconds and serve! I love Uncle Ben’s Rice, I don’t care if you boil it or microwave it always turns out perfect.

 

 
So to serve this, in a bowl, I made a bed of the White Rice. Topped it with Water Chestnuts, Sugar Snap Peas, and Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 011Pineapple Tidbits. The topped that with the Turkey Meatballs, and chow down! This made one delicious dish! The Turkey Meatballs were incredible. The Meatballs absorbed all that Sweet and Sour Sauce and just made the Meatballs pop with flavor. Then you have a mixture of Water Chestnuts, Sugar Snap Peas, and Pineapple Tidbits. All just had such a fantastic flavor, the Pineapple Juice just tied all 3 ingredients together. With the bed of White Rice it made everything perfect, Rice is good with any dish! I’ll have to add this to the “Keeper Recipes” I had a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
