You know about adding some beets to your salad plate. This was a plate of beets with some salad added!
So damn good.
Are beets in season? I honestly don't know the lifecycle of this glorious orb. But I can tell you how to cook them. Bonk them, unpeeled, into a small covered casserole dish with a tiny puddle of water, and roast for an hour. Take them out and plunge into a bowl of cold water (in the sink), where you can easily massage the skins off.
Cranky decorated this salad with blue cheese, a little too much for me.
But let me tell you about cheese. The Crankycrumbs are considering an experimental vegan diet, for a week. Probably after the holidays. Laugh, monsters, but a lot of the food we eat is vegan already.
I'll tell you about it next month.
