First I made a simple green and black olive tapenade…with just a large spoonful of light sour cream….and Voila! a yummy tapenade made in the food processor in just seconds using pulse, which I spread on the bread for the mini sliders…
And yes, of course I included some green and black chopped olives in my lean hamburger meat….as well as 1/3 cup of Panko and one egg white to bind it all together….out of 1 lb. of meat, I made a dozen mini sliders…..super delish nice and hot on the cold olive tapenade….those amazing flavors coming all together….outrageously olivy! That’s all I can say….
But what about the potato salad, you ask? I had a couple of red potatoes, which are softer than regular white baking potatoes and boiled them till they were cooked through but not falling apart. After taking them out of the boiling water, shocked them in an ice bath, while I prepared the yummy dressing.
Out came the Dijon mustard, low calorie mayonnaise, a dash of cayenne, cumin, a dash of turmeric, a dash of black pepper and 1/4 cup of crushed bacon. Mixed this together, chopped the potatoes into bite size pieces, and mixed in cherry tomatoes…..let me tell you….this was amazingly flavorful and this plate was just right!
So sharing Psalm 128 is superbly apropos….
How joyful are those who fear the Lord – all who follow his ways!
You will enjoy the fruit of your labor. How joyful and prosperous you will be!
Your wife will be like a fruitful grapevine, flourishing within your home.
Your children will be like vigorous young olive trees (!!) as they sit around your table.
That is the Lord’s blessing for those who fear him.
May the Lord continually bless you from Zion.
May you see Jerusalem prosper as long as you live.
May you live to enjoy your grandchildren.
May Israel have peace!
Have a blessed evening!
