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.
I would so love to have you over. What I'd love to do is do a lovely grocery shopping and then descend on my kitchen (with my new stove) and spend the afternoon just cooking. Your "boy" seems to love good food as much as mine so they would be happy to have us do just that. Even after 32+ years, he still never fails to compliment me on the meals he gets.
ETA: I have the recipes printed out and they will be mailed to you today!
I have included a carrot cake recipe with a pecan cream filling that will knock your socks off! It's the best carrot cake I've ever, ever tasted.
