Autumn is filled with pumpkins & turkeys, so we decided to go with the flow and create these tasty turkey meatballs & savory¬†pumpkin sauce! It’s perfect for dinner, (Meal 4 on the Remedy Recipes format,) over a cup of shredded zucchini and accompanied by a side salad. We’ve been enjoying this creation every week, and still find ourselves craving to make a new batch every couple of days.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Give thanks!!!

Thank you, God,

for the roof over our heads, the food on our table, the clothes on our backs, for a loving family & friends, for work & opportunity, and for being born free & knowing freedom in our lifetime. Amen.
