What a beautiful day!
The sun shone warm,
the breezes were soft and cool,
and the garden yielded an incredible
harvest of beets and parsnips today.
What to do with them all?
I think I'll take some to the family gathering
tomorrow to see if I can
get rid of share some.
Supper tonight was inspired by
I took the liberty of changing up the recipe
a bit by adding beets, sweet potato and squash as well.
The chops were put into the marinade,
popped into the fridge, and
off to the garden we went!
It's been a while since I've tended to things
The tomato cages needed to be removed,
dead plants pulled and piled,
the last of the lettuce cut,
dill gathered for next year's seeds,
and beets, beets and more beets
along with the last few parsnips pulled.
|Striped beets, Yellow beets, and the traditional Red Beets - Yikes!|
All in all, the weather could not have been
nicer and I was so thankful for the farmer's help today.
It was dark and late by the time supper
went into the oven.
|Veggies ready for roasting|
|Success - the roasted parsnips and beets were especially tasty.|
Dinner was yummy but alas,
it only took 2 large beets ..... hmmm,
I'll definitely have to come up with some more beet recipes!
Happy Thanksgiving All!!!!
and to all my American friends - have a wonderful weekend - your
Thanksgiving Weekend is yet to come.
Till next time ......... looking forward to our family gathering tomorrow to celebrate yet another year of bounty and blessings.
