I like most vegetables. That sounds pretty good.

I have a salad recipe that I picked up out of the NYT that features roasted sweet potatoes and carrots on a bed of greens with a Greek yogurt dressing and roasted chick peas. It's really good.

Put some Brussels Sprouts and whole mushrooms in there next time. I LOVE root veggies. We have roasted veggie mix all the time. Sneak some bacon in there if you can...

I've been known to cruise the headlines, and articles there occasionally, and the food section has some good recipes. I do love my food.

I read a lot of stuff. People here might be surprised.

I know, I was just being silly.

I could just picture you sitting their reading the Times with your Bill O'Reilly mug filled with hot coffee and turning the pages with salad tongs.

Sounds good, I like root veggies. Only one problem, I do not like squash and a squash isn't a root veggie so I can leave that one out. If you take about three pounds of baby reds, one onion, a half pound of carrots, a stick and a half of real butter, a cup of water, some garlic salt, sea salt, and pepper, and add them to a dutch oven and stick them over a fire or even in your oven stirring every fifteen minutes, they come out pretty good.

Ha! Actually, I'm more likely to have a Yoda or Doctor Who mug. I'm too Geeky for O'Reilly. My husband is the one who likes to watch O'Reilly. I can't fathom why although I find O'Reilly a useful barometer to the squishy middle.

How about swapping the squash for sweet potatoes? Sweet potatoes are subterranean and they would give you a similar flavor to the squash?

Just today I was checking my beets, turnips and sweet potatoes and dreaming of what it to come!
I'm partial to beets and sweet potatoes but my Beloved has cravings for turnips. We both like the greens of both turnips and beets---heck we like all kinds of greens.

One of my favorite beet recipes is roasted beet salad.
Wash beets, spread preferred fat on them (I like olive oil) and roast them until tender. Peel and chop. Add some roasted pecans, some pickled asparagus and a sprinkle of your favorite cheese. I like to sprinkle a bit of an apple cider vinaigrette as well but my Beloved eats his plain.

A favorite sweet potato bake that my grandmother made was chopped sweet potatoes and apples. Add a bit of brown sugar, spices of choice, (I like cinnamon and allspice) some butter and chopped pecans. Roast until tender. I add more butter when serving and a sprinkle of freshly-grated nutmeg.

I had a chef friend that would always make chips out of root vegetables, he would always have a bowl of them on the kitchen table. Very easy to make, just bake on a low heat and salt (or season) to taste. You can also do them in a food dehydrator. I guess you could fry them too but its a bit healthier without all the oil.
