To continue the party-themed posts this week, I give you Turkey Meatballs with Soy-Ginger Glaze. I have made this recipe a few times now, and I only love it more and more. I would eat this over rice for an excellent and simple dinner, or on a sandwich or with a spoon. Or as an appetizer at a party, as it was served here. It also makes a great dish for entertaining since you can mix up the meatballs and sauce several hours ahead of time, leaving you only with the task of sautéing the meatballs themselves. They are also still quite good a room temperature.

In an effort to be slightly healthier, Ari and I have started making more fish. Of course, it’s still battered and pan-fried, but still better than a steak, right? Or bacon? Anyways, we made these fish tacos the other night and they not only came together in half an hour, but they were also quite good. And you get your daily serving of vegetables! Everyone wins. Well, except the fish, perhaps. Continue reading
What’s that you say? Green onion waffles? Makes me think of green eggs and ham. Which, in fact, could go very well with this savory spin on waffles. Not being able to resist using my waffle maker for all meals, I found this delightful recipe on another great blog, Joy the Baker. Joy, who is obviously very smart, also appreciates that waffles should not only be for breakfast. Although you can of course serve this for breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner. Or a mid-afternoon snack, preferably accompanied by a mimosa. In any case, if you are in possession of a waffle iron I strongly encourage you to try it immediately.
Cornmeal and Green Onion Waffles (serves 3-4, adapted from Joy the Baker)
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1/3 cup melted butter
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
4 tablespoons chopped green onions
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Salsa, eggs, and avocado, sliced (I used a tomatillo salsa which was great)
Set your waffle iron in a level, clean surface and turn on to preheat.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, butter, and buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients, all at once to the dry ingredients. Add the chives and parsley. Stir until just incorporated. Try not to over-mix the batter. If a few lumps remain in the batter, that’s ok.
Cook according to your waffle machine instructions.
