It’s chilly. I am in the mood for something warm and comforting. Maybe a bit traditional and certainly simple to prepare. I’d like to crank the oven and sit in my kitchen with a good book. These Salt Roasted Golden Beets with Anise Seeds certainly fit the bill.
Because I’ll be honest. I am having a little trouble finding my Sippity Sup mojo again. It’s seems to happen every year just after the rush of the holidays. It’s a bit like Post Partum Depression I imagine. Not that a food blog is like a baby. Oh wait, what am I saying? That’s exactly what a food blog is like. Because in order to thrive, a blog takes constant care and feeding.
So if the blog’s gotta eat and I gotta eat, then of course I gotta feed you, my virtual eaters, too… Still, I can’t get past the lazy in the kitchen blues these days. So whatever I do it’s gotta be simple, I’ve got a book to read. But who says simple can’t be spectacular?
But the thing about simple foods is in order for them to succeed you need to be sure the simple method you choose is not just simply a short cut, but rather the fast lane to perfection.
Root veggies are a great example of a food that can achieve perfection in the simplest of manners. Sometime in our past we humans were digging around in the dirt and we hit about the idea of eating roots. The world has been a better place ever since.
