Born and raised in Texas, transplanted in Chicago.
I love to cook but am looking to expand my horizons. Recently joined a CSA and get a weekly produce box. Every week I get a veggie or two I've never eaten and must figure out what to do with it!
Hey there and welcome to DC!
YUM to beets! I roast them, as well as pickle them.
Love to hear about those who get their daily items from local farms - totally cool!
PS: bf was born/raised in Chicago, then moved to TX before his big adventure out to SoCal where he is now. I envy both of those places for spectacular food!
welcome to our friendly foodie forum, jm!:) i too am getting a portion of my food from local farmers and specialty vendors. the idea of trying new-to-you veggies and fruits every week sounds exciting and fun to take on! i like beets, especially pickled with onions. they are a nice addition to salads of all kinds. i like to incorporate them in a basic potato salad (mayo or sour cream based), together with chopped dill pickles, radishes and eggs. let us know what you come up with....:)
Welcome to D.C.!
I love me some pickled beets. I also like 'em boiled up and served as is. Mighty good!
I used to be a racist, but I don't have much interest in it since Dale Earnhardt got killed.
