Just felt a NEED for salmon and, since today was grocery shopping day, we had butter-seared salmon, broccoli-rice, mixed greens salad, and iced tea. We were nicely sated.

I've never liked raisins except in Picadillo. I like real dried currants as a sub in other dishes that call for raisins.

Those black bean and mushroom meatballs sound and look delicious! Iím assuming theyíre vegan/vegetarian? I donít really care, except that Iíve never really liked beef meatballs. Do you have a recipe or a link to one?

My master gardener group had the students' graduation potluck last night. I knew lots of people would be bringing creamy sides and salads, so I decided to make K'girl's Namasu - lightly pickled sliced vegetables. I used an English cucumber, a large carrot, a yellow squash and a parsnip. And I used her gorgeous technique of cutting the veggies to look like flowers. The master gardeners loved it. Thanks for the inspiration, K'girl

Here's her recipe: https://mykitcheninthemiddleofthedes...easier-namasu/

I also made Chef John's mini tarts with puff pastry and sweetened cream cheese with lemon juice and Penzeys Pie Spice. Click image for larger version

I used this as a guide https://www.foodbymaria.com/2018/06/...an-meat-balls/

To this I added two big mushrooms. For the oatmeal I just used plain ol quick cooking oats. I seasoned with soy sauce, oregano, thyme and for hot sauce I used some red salsa. Since the black beans had salt I did not add any.

Browned them then dumped in a jar of sauce.

I plan to work on the recipe just a little more then I will do a blog post.

Italian-Americans would probably call it Sunday Gravy. Just a really meaty tomato sauce.
