I picked up a trick from my daughter over the weekend that I am going to try - she roasts her beets and then stores them in the refrigerator to use later. She said to roast them in their skins and then the skins come right off. I have to try this.
The Rev and I are eating mostly vegetables now this summer. Tonight dinner consisted of potatoes, squash, carrots and wax beans. Some of the fresh parsley on the beans and squash made for a very nice (and filling) meal. We didn't even miss not having any meat. Don't get me wrong, I'm not becoming a vegetarian, but when the veggies are this fresh, it is hard not to pig out on them.

Dark Red Norland potatoes were the featured item this week. The first potatoes of the season. They were small, firm and tasted wonderful. All I did was sprinkle some olive oil on the veggies in that pan and seasoned them with Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Roast them on the grill and you are good to go.
We also found a beautiful onion, a small eggplant, and three beets. I haven't sliced the beets yet but I think at least one of them is a striped beet. I've never had those before so I'm looking forward to that. I will probably just slice them up and boil them, at least the first time.

Half the year is gone. I hope you have a pleasant Independence Day week-end celebration.
