Asian Inspired Muffin Tin Monday with Many Squashes

Thankfully, this week's Muffin Tin Monday went over much better than last week's!  

We went with an Asian theme, in my quest to use up every zucchini and squash in our garden in new and exciting ways.
Pierce had tempura zucchini, sushi rolls w/ cream cheese and zucchini, tempura squash, sweet pickled squash, sesame noodles w/ shrimp and edamame, and tamari for dipping.
This was a really yummy dinner and Pierce declared his favorite thing was the sushi! 
Paul and I happen to love sushi too, and it really isn't difficult to make once you learn how, plus it's quite healthy, so I'll have to start fixing it more often.

I'm impressed! I've always thought I would have rice all over the kitchen in any attempt to make these "muffins." ;)

Thank you for stopping by so that I could find my way here. My daughter lives at the foot of the Blueridge Parkway and I have done the San Antonio, the Chicago, the Marine Corp and the Big Sur marathons... all a few years ago. I still mourn having to give up running because of my knee, but I remember what it was like. =)

It was nice to *meet* you.

Yum! I want lunch at your place! I'm slowly weaning my girl onto Asian foods - she won't eat sushi, but she'll eat it if I use ham instead of nori. And she does love tempura.

Didn't know there were so many yummy sounding ways to make squash.

What a cute little meme.. I haven't seen this one before. Your garden veggies look SO delicious... There's just nothing better. We had some fresh corn-on-the-cob tonight along with some fresh tomato slices and cukes.... YUM.

Have a great Tuesday.
Hugs,
Betsy
