A few weeks ago I bought some herbs to grow on my deck in containers. One of them was thyme! It started growing like crazy almost immediately. I needed to think of something to use it and I started out thinking about roast chicken and using it inside the bird.
Then I had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner one night and when I made the meatballs I used the fresh oregano that I had growing.
Flash! How about using the thyme in a meatball.
Chicken came to mind at first but when I went to the grocery store the sale of the week was dark ground turkey. So, I bought the turkey to use instead. Actually I bought a few packages of it and there is still one in my freezer.
The next day I was reading a recipe about lemon chicken and it occurred to me that the thyme AND the lemon would be perfect for meatballs.
Later that day… this recipe happened. I hope you enjoy it. We did and I will be making it again real soon!
