Good, Simple Food

What’s a mom to do when the only other beet-lover in the family moves out? Sweet Miss was home for the weekend, and I sent her home with a few freshly picked beets, but I failed to serve up some roasted beet salad or other treats while she was here. 

It’s disheartening to make a dish that the rest of the family refuses to eat. The MR and Baby Girl are confirmed beet-haters. It just takes the joy out of the situation when I eat beets around them. 

That’s when I came up with a fabulous idea. Everyone’s on their own for breakfast. Why not eat beets in the morning? No one complains or turns up their nose, and I can eat them to my heart’s content. 

I toasted some leftover French bread, spread on some fresh cheese, and added sliced, roasted beets. Then I topped it with some local honey and a sprinkle of dried thyme from our herb garden. 

Simple foods combined for a satisfying breakfast. 

I know what I’m having for breakfast tomorrow. Maybe I’ll mix things up and drizzle on some basalmic vinegar and some toasted walnuts. 

What’s on your menu for breakfast?

  1. That sounds so great, and I baked some beets just yesterday, and we had some left over from dinner, so think I will have them for breakfast tomorrow………….unless Larry eats them for lunch today. Thank you for the great idea.
