I will apologize for YET AGAIN not having a photo to share! I rushed off to this potluck and had not the time to take a photo.

I had shelled all these fresh edamame and not knowing how to cook them, I found a simple recipe in “Appetite for Reduction” by Isa Chandra Moskowitz that seemed to fit my potluck bill: Sushi roll edamame salad.

I had sushi for the very first time back in July, and I must say, I loved it! It was vegan but great.

This salad includes all the sushi tastes, just minus the actual roll. I made the brown rice ahead of time, and when I got home, I did a quick assemble. I had cut the cucumber and carrots the night before.

I did not have nori, so I used some kombu and kelp powder. It probably had less of a sea taste, but that is fine with me.

The miso tamari dressing was good, too.

At the potluck (this is different than the vegan meetup), the guests ate it up! Because we donated our food to one of the attendees, I left home with an empty bowl.

And that is fine with me, as this recipe is simple enough, I know I will always have the ingredients in my pantry.

Oh, Jersey. You don’t represent yourself well. Look at the MTV show Jersey Shore.

I hate that show. It is most offensive because I am Italian, born and raised. My great-grandfather Silvio immigrated in the early 1900s to pave a better life. And then these … people (for lack of a better word) disgrace the ethnicity.

I also grew up with the joke, “Let’s bomb Jersey and give Pa. a beach.” LOL. (Sorry to all those from New Jersey.)

I will say this, though, they know how to do french fries (and apparently tanning and clubbing.)

When I saw the words “disco fries” on my list, I was intrigued. I LOVE fries. No, I L-O-V-E fries. I loved getting cheese fries when I was younger, and I bet I would still love them now. And I have never had gravy fries, let alone CHEESE, gravy fries!
