I've been told by them that if I am not making my broccoli & cauliflower casserole then not to show up.
I think I gave you the beet and pear recipe - if not let me know. Then there is the cranberry sauce made with port wine and fresh oranges and juice.
There is also an awesome mashed potato casserole with grated cheddar in the potatoes and a whipped cream topping that you cook at 200 for a fair length of time.
Gosh I always get so hungry when I read and post here.
Oh, don't I know it!!!
And I have just finished brunch, so it's not as if I'm hungry or anything!
The Boy is still talking about the turnip this morning, and I thought I'd mention that I wished I'd known about it while Dad was still with us. I did turnip occasionally, because I knew he loved it, but he knew that it was far from our favourite, so he didn't expect it often. We'd have had this treatment, now known as Turnip Yosemite, right there in the rotation with everything else, and he'd have loved it too.
Now, what's this about beets and pears? I don't recall seeing that, and I think I'd have remembered -- yes, please!! I wouldn't say no to the cranberry sauce and the mashed potatoes either, but we're just into root veg season and I'm salivating for beets.
And you KNOW that if my nieces ever succeed in getting us to travel east again -- they're all in the Toronto area, but getting us out of our own backyard is like pulling teeth -- they'll have to do without us while we descend on you for a meal
-- or ten! (JK, we try not to be greedy.)
Reruns tonight. There's just enough left to feed the two of us once more.
