Better yet, Do I know what a Foodie is or am I throwing around terms willy nilly?
I do know one thing, I am accumulating food blogs. I blame the CSA.
The only beets eaten in my family have come from a Jar or a can & were consumed by others.
Now I a couple fresh beets on my counter - so what is a pseudo-internet savvy gal to do? Google how to cook beets.
I got a few interesting hits - for recipes that sounded "not so good" to me...
Then I noticed one was a blog....
She has a recipe for Beet Risotto (Sorry no hyperlinks at this time - this is supposed to be a quick post.)
& on another food blog just the other day, I saw a posting for crock pot risotto (I am game for almost anything done in that migic pot - I need to get some liners for it though.)
So even though the weather is going to be in the 80's I am going to try out this recipe! (Or to be more correct - recipes, since that method for Risotto is new to me to.)
I am also going to make a soup with the kale... Mr. Calico Cat keeps the A/C on, so it won't feel like summer while cooking or eating - just while running to the store for the one missing ingredient... (FYI We had no Baking Soda for the Chocolate banana bread yesterday - so I had a bowl of dry & a bowl of wet waiting - gave me a minute to do a few dishes...)
One more thing - we are joining a CSA of sorts for beef! (Organic, locally raised - Frederick County, MD, butchered in Baltimore and Kashered beef.) The price is not great for people who do not eat Kosher Beef, but for those of us that do & understand all of the extra steps that contribute to the increaded costs it is a "deal." I am just happy to know that the cows ate grass not hormones & that they are local - I really like buying from local farmers so that they don't have to sell to developers making my commute even worse!
