Debbie Mumm and the Beets

Sounds like a 70's rock band!  LOL.

Well, I just want to remind you not to forget about the Giveaway of that nice Debbie Mumm book.  She is a wonderful lady and would want to spend Christmas in your home, I am sure.  Along with her Ark of Animals and Santas and Duckie Quilts.  Leave a message on THIS POST to be in the running for her book.

I am still cleaning up and rearranging stuff so I have another couple of things to give away so you have to be awake to vie for them!  No snoozin'  !!

The beets were obtained from the Farmer's Market and Bike Ride on Saturday.  Lots of root veggies came home with them.  Carrots, turnips, parsnips.  And some hefty greens for salads like arugula, kale and buttercream lettuce.  And citrus  - Meyer Lemons.

And broccoli as big as a basketball!  Really!
The beets were interesting because I have never had them before not out of a can.  I saved the greens for salads and roasted the beets in the oven for about 30 minutes drenched with olive oils from Greece.  Then when cool, I peeled them by rubbing the peels off with my fingers thusly turning my fingers a nice sharp pink.

Then I sliced them for salad.  Oh, my!  Beet Heaven!
I an going to see if I can get a bushel of beets next week.  Yeah, buddy!

The turnips were trimmed, boiled and mashed.  And the greens cooked down with a ham bone leftover from some unfortunate pig accident. 

glen:  I am hungry all over again.
