Roasted Beet Blue Cheese Over Mixed Greens
by the seat of my pants!

4-6 medium beets
1/4-1/2 c blue cheese crumbles
1/4-1/2 c toasted broken walnuts - if desired
4-6 c mixed greens
vinaigrette of choice, this one would be delicious!

Place beets in a baking dish, roast at 350 degrees for 1-1 1/4 hours or until pierced easily with the tip of a knife.

Note: ( I am amazed at how long beets take to cook up tender, but this is so worth the time needed. Plus you can complete other jobs while the beets bake unattended.)

Set aside and let cool. Remove the skin, this is easily done by pushing gently against the beet until the skin begins to "slip". Slice and set aside.

To assemble the salad:
Toss the salad greens with vinaigrette, layer in the bottom of a shallow serving dish.
Toss beet slices with additional vinaigrette, layer over salad greens.
Add blue cheese and finally top with walnuts.

Enjoy!

Green Bean Cobbler, AKA "the other green bean casserole"

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…
This green bean casserole is very good and a perfect way to enjoy those green beans put away in the freezer from last years garden. Of course, it is just as delicious with green beans bought from the grocery store. It is also nothing like the more famous holiday green bean casserole, this one is not too salty or processed, it is fresh and delicious! 
Green beans, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and a crunchy topping, what is not to like? The author suggests that this casserole is made with either garlic or onions. And I think she is correct, both might overpower the sour cream covering the green beans. This first time I will make it with garlic and the next time will be with onions.....

Southern Green Beans

Green beans are in our freezer for use this winter. Having grown in our garden this summer. I have never been a big fan of green beans, until growing our own. There is something satisfying about cooking what you grow. There is a lot we have learned about growing what you will cook.....


We were successful with green beans last year and again this year. However, we did not grow the same beans this year. This year we grew tri-colored beans. They are beautiful as well as tasty. You will see that once cooked, magically the beans are all the same color.

Taco Pickles

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…
When I eat Tex-Mex, I enjoy a spicy, vinegary condiment on my food. And when we have fish for dinner, I want something with a bit of a bite to it, to add some excitement. Fish can be a bit tame on that dinner plate. You could also tuck a spoonful of this crispy, spicy, sweet and puckery delight in a sandwich or anywhere else a spicy flavor is desired!

For this recipe we used carrots stored in our root cellar from last fall, I think we can call the root cellar project a success!
