Marla and I are having a blast with our cooking get-togethers. We basically both pick out a couple of recipes or recipe ideas, and proceed to make a mess in the kitchen together, while our husbands eagerly await for the results. We end up with 4 or 5 dishes that we all share, tapas style.
Serious discussion ensues. Too spicy? Personally, I’ve never heard of such a thing, but it has been mentioned. Too salty? Sometimes it’s better to measure than eye-balling it. Wow–fresh mint is what makes this dish pop. Recipe here! Do you think bacon is really necessary in this dish? Oh wait, that was just me. I think everyone else voted for more bacon.
We decided we needed a title . . . an easy phrase to use when referring to these events. Whole food = brain food. After testing out new recipes and filling our bellies with delicious food, it hit us.

The math teachers within us needed to clean that up a bit. M²T³.
So there you have it. We are excited to announce M²T³ Events. They will be continuing! Most likely rather randomly (mid- to end-July for the next one). But we’ll be excited to share them with you. :)
Thursday’s M²T³ Event Menu
- Thai-inspired Veggie Nori Maki (see below)
- Raw zucchini noodles with Sun-dried Tomato Sauce
- Lightly Seasoned Bison Burgers served with Bella Buns or Almond Buns
- Cucumber Salsa
- Guacamole, with fresh squeezed orange

Thai-inspired Veggie Maki
- 2 T. raw, unsalted almond butter

Spread the almond butter and wasabi onto nori. Add julienned veggies and roll ‘er on up! Serve with Tamari Sauce (or Coconut Aminos to be completely Primal/Paleo).
Until next time . . .
