Jarred or canned mushrooms last forever... and bring as much protein as meat into a pasta sauce... and taste good - so if you find a deal, it really improves those sauces you already have...
On what planet do canned mushrooms have anywhere near the protein levels as meat?

BTW that's all salsa, not pasta/tomato sauce.

Just an FYI... yes, not the same amount of protein vs weight, but you can eat 8x as many mushrooms as beef to get the same amount of protein

The amount of beef or mushrooms provided to the participants was roughly equal in terms of protein and number of calories, but because the mushrooms are of lower calorie density than the beef, the volume of mushrooms provided per serving was much greater (about 226 grams per serving of mushrooms versus 28 grams of beef).

Since covid ruined the Greek festival 2 years in a row we are doing our own again this year. We got 10 people coming and all dishes have to be greek. I just finished my Baklava and am working on my Spanakopita/spinach pie.

My late Uncle was Greek, 1st gen. We were invited to his parent‘s for Sunday dinner once and I will never forget it. His Mother’s sister was visiting from Greece and didn’t speak any English but boy could she cook! I remember her rolling out the dough for the baklava with a broomstick!

Greeks tend to over feed people. Running out of food when giving a party would be a traumatic event for most of us. My Mom used to do all the parties and they are labor intensive. I only make Baklava it is actually fairly easy to make. Most greek restaurants do american version of food. You have to cook ti yourself to get authentic.

Well, you won't have to pluck your eyebrows for a little while. That's a good thing too.

The really funny part was I was unaware my head had a fire on it, until some fellow soldiers pointed it out. lol

I can just imagine that as scene in a Three Stooges movie. Glad you weren't hurt. Close calls when looking back can be funny incidents especially when no one gets hurt.

Its just one eyebrow. The worst part is there were witnesses telling me not to do it . Now I got to listen to them say "I told you so". But, I think I have it down. Im trying again today with a bit more caution. :)

I remember from some list, the advice, "Never eat something that is on fire!"

LOL, Misty... this is the same hospital crew that participated in secret potluck suppers in the middle of strict lockdown. We had clandestine dinners of more than 10 people. All of us worked the covid floor so what the heck, why not? This is also the crew you do not want to set yourself of fire while cooking in front of. They are some sarcastic, smart asses. I'm glad I got the fire stuff over with the day before.
