Spicy Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

This is a riff on the meal Tess ordered at Zuni Cafe last week. I served the meatballs on grits instead of polenta and added some sauteed sweet peppers with a reduced balsamic glaze. The meatball recipe came from Joanne Weir's From Tapas to Meze.

Smoked Salmon and Jicama Sushi

Continuing the sushi theme... I found a Ming Tsai recipe for smoked and and jicama sushi rolls that was very good.

Sushi Futo-maki

My sister gave me Hiroko Shimbo's cookbook The Sushi Experience. I love sushi but rarely make it. Futo-maki is a thick roll with shrimp, shiitakes, asparagus and eggs. This was pretty good.
