Last night we ate organic golden beets for the first time. They’ve rocketed to number one on the snack food list. Not to mention incredible nutrition values. Method: scrub, peel, cube, toss with a tablespoon of oil, spread on baking sheet, dust with salt and pepper, and roast at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. They’re beautiful, too.
A super 4th of July cookout menu would include beets, sliced red ripe tomatoes, and Portobello mushroom “burgers” with iceberg lettuce and other goodies. Yum.
**** yesterday afternoon.
Today we plan to take the truck to Sam’s for ac repair, and today or tomorrow the old “Squeaky” Lincoln for repairs, then wash and wax and back to Sam’s for Larry to sell for us on Craig’s List. I plan to mow grass today and hopefully pick up my old hard drive (plus portable drive) at Tech Advanced.
Sad that my “morning writing” has devolved into list making, but I believe in the process, and that the discipline of the process will get me back to a creative space. Sure hope so.
