Stripes, Maroon Vest, and Healthy Crockpot Turkey Meatballs!

It's Sunday! 

Sundays in September make me think of Fall and Football, so I'd say this post fits that thought perfectly. 

Today I've got a cute Fall look featuring a maroon vest from Just a Small Town Girl Boutique. I've also got a healthy turkey meatball recipe which is perfect for tailgating or watching your favorite team at home without feeling guilty for snacking. 


Below I've styled a cute maroon utility vest with a simple striped shirt from Target along with some dark skinny jeans, and some comfy booties that I recently got on sale at Target!
I've linked each piece underneath the pics. 

Who else is loving the chunky booties and maroon this season?!

Time for a healthy crockpot recipe! Courtesy of good ole Pinterest... just tweaked to fit my allergies.

Here's what you will need for these "hot" turkey meatballs! Also, here's the original recipe. I didn't have ground chicken, so I used ground turkey. I also used almond flour instead of Panko crumbs for a gluten free option.

- 1 pound lean ground turkey meat
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- salt and pepper, to taste (I use pink salt and ground pepper)
- 3/4 cup buffalo sauce (I use Frank's RedHot)

Directions from the original recipe with my additions/substitutions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, almond flour, egg, garlic and onion powder and green onions; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir until well combined (I use my hands!). Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 24 meatballs.
  3. Place meatballs onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 4-5 minutes, or until all sides are browned.
  4. Place meatballs into a slow cooker. Add buffalo sauce and gently toss to combine. Cover and cook on low heat for 2 hours.
  5. Serve immediately.

Have a great Sunday!
