Garden Dinner

This evening’s supper included beets and a turnip from the garden. I don’t know the particular kind of beets, because we planted a pack that was a mixture. The red one on the left was long and skinny. The candy cane striped one was red on the outside peel. And on the right is the turnip.

I sautéed them all together in some avocado oil and threw in the greens from all three as well. The only other addition was a little salt.

I topped some freshly made polenta with a fried egg and some cheddar cheese. Then I spooned the beet, turnip, and greens mixture over the top.

It was a fine repast.

What’s For Dinner?

What to do when you don’t know what’s for dinner. Grab something out of the freezer and add a side.

Lightly breaded perch, and polenta with mushroom gravy, peas, and Parmesan cheese. I also keep an all purpose breading in a ziplock bag in the freezer. Usually 3/4 flour, 1/4 cornmeal, salt, garlic & onion powder, and a little dill. The spices may vary.

The breading is suitable for fish or chicken. Keeping it in the freezer let’s you reuse it a few times.
