Pie Rogi: So sorry

Pie Rogi, Buon Giorno, Good Morning,

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My sincere condolences.

To move on, I am a firm believer, in the old adage: Everyone is happy at the table or do not sit down ! I truly enjoy table decoration; candles, plates to mix and match, fresh flowers, wild preferably, gorgeous plating, napkin rings, stemware even for sparkling water, ambiance, and of course, the company invited ... Never a t.v. and never, arguing at the table !

The Vet truly appreciates having a beautiful table setting ... simplicity yet elegant and country style blend ...

Souvlaki was kind enough to provide some more beetroot and beet top leaf recipes for us !

So, I am going to try them out certainly...

All my best for a great August,
Any vacation plans ?

Have you emailed Charlie D. yet for the Borscht recipe ?

Margi. Ciao.

Souvlaki: You are Wonderful

Souvlaki,

Firstly, Buon Giorno, and thanks so much for the Beetroot recipes ... I love Beetroot and in Galicia, the NW of Spain, I have a white bean soup called Caldo Gallego, which incorporates beet root leaves ... They are delicious. In Galicia, they are quite indigenious to this region and are called Grelos in Galician which is very similar to Portuguese with a Latin flair ...

The fish chowder: a thick creamy fish Soup ... this is wonderful ... I prefer yourīs in all honesty, as I do not love pancetta ...

It does provide alot of flavor, however, I do not eat very much pork as the fat content is tremendous; except for lean Prosciutto di Parma or Acorn fed Jabugo Spanish Black foot ham ... I prefer steak 100% beef and roast lamb personally ...

However, I am going to try yours for Friday. Today I was unable to get over to the docks.

I had to get over to the Post Office to mail some magazines over to the USA ( my Mom, older daughter and old old friends ).

I bought 2 kilos of fresh ripe Greek Peaches, for Kadesmaīs Cold Peach Soup. What a stunning Gazpacho this is ... It is not made with tomato, however, PEACHES ... aromatic bouquet ... I am making this today.

Kind regards and thanks for your email.

Margi.

Souvlaki & Pierogi: Photos 2 Beetroot Recipes

Souvlaki and Pie Rogi,

Here are the two photos from Thessalonikki Port, in northeast Greece where I have learnt to prepare these two recipes and have been preparing them, the same exact way.

Grate the beetroots, carrots and the apple, leave them to drain.

in a bowl mix the walnuts, the olive oil, the vinegar and add salt and pepper. Add the grated vegetavles in the bowl and mix well.

Sprinkle some fresh chopped parsley when serving the salad.

i would reccomend to leave the salad for several hours, so the vegetables are going to taste better. I prepeare it in the morning and keep it in the refrigerator, we like it cold.
This sounds delicious. What does "...beetroots, raw, pilled" mean?

Tax Lady,

The photos posted are the Beetroot with walnuts and feta and the one that you enjoyed so much, beetroot with feta, tzatziki and mint ...

Souvlaki has posted her traditional recipe for the walnut and beetroot salad, which I shall prepare tomorrow after the farmerīs market ...

All my best, have lovely Summer,
Margaux.

That's what I was wondering, but "peeled" is spelled correctly a number of other places in that recipe. I looked it up in Wiktionary and "pilled" is actually an obsolete form of the word "peeled". (It also means that your sweater got those little round things they get from wear. )

Either way, you remove the sweaters from the beets...

All the recipes sound lovely. Will have to look for some beets.

Tax Lady and Dawgluver,

Interesting post Tax Lady ...

Imagine; you are a tax accountant, and a taxi is a vehicle which transports people in a registered special car ... English has quite a few interesting twists ... Latin, Greek, Arabic, Saxon, Anglo & Norman, Germanic, French etcetra ...

None the less, we all make type-oh errors ... I have to proof more carefully as I type extremely quickly.

Kind regards.
Margi.
