This winter I've been trying to get my kids to eat more beets. It has been a real challenge so far. These "fries" seem promising, though: there are plenty of similar recipes out there, but this is the best one yet. The key is to slice them thin, 1/4 inch all around. Then add just a hint of sweet tanginess, some thyme and a decent amount of salt.
Posole from Nopalito restaurant is one of my favorite lunches ever, so I thought I'd try making it myself. This version of posole has pork in a green broth, instead of beef in a red broth, and is quick to prepare, as long as the hominy has been cooked ahead of time or comes from a can.
Spicy Sweet Potato is our usual favorite orange soup, but this one is good, too. More gingery than spicy, but I have to say that sweet potatoes and butternut squash taste pretty similar when cooked in chicken broth with onion.
