Buttermilk-mustard sauced meatballs on brown rice...

This afternoon I'm making one of my favorite dishes - meatballs in a buttermilk mustard sauce. I love it. I don't make it all that often, but I should! I have some brown rice cooking up in the crockpot now.

Meatballs: Make the meatballs of your preference, whether they are ground sirloin or walnut-lentil or everything in-between.

Buttermilk-Mustard Sauce: Buy a 1 quart container of buttermilk. Melt 3tbsp butter (or, in my case, Earth Balance) in a sauce pan. Add 1/4 cup of flour. Whisk together. Add 1 tbsp Colman's dry mustard. Add 1/4 cup sugar. Whisk some more - it will be a dry paste. Add in a cup of buttermilk. Whisk everything together until all lumps are dissolved. Add the rest of the buttermilk. Whisk over medium heat until sauce thickens. {Vegan style: grab the milk of your choice, say, 1 nearly-quart-size container of Hemp Milk. Add 4 tbsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Let sit for 10 minutes. Then use in recipe.}

Rice: Make the rice of your choosing. My favorite is Jasmine rice, but I currently only have Short Brown Rice in the house, so I am making that in some vegetable broth.

Combine all three!
