This recipe is quick and easy, and it got both of my children eating beets. Last week my daughter came home raving about the delicious beet latkes her garden class made in school that day, so I had to try them at home. She was right, they are very good. Thanks to @EducationOutside for helping my kids learn to love real, healthy food!
This is a Senegalese dish that Marcus Samuelson likes to get in South Harlem. I was pretty excited to find a one pot meal recipe that calls for cabbage, and to see peanuts referred to as ground-nuts, since I've long wondered what ground-nut oil is. It often shows up in British cookbooks.
We love meatballs at my house and these are good! More carrots than usual, but that doesn't seem to be a problem. I served them with Nigel's Naked Sauce from Eatwell Farm and our son Gus' Farmstead Cheese, which he made at Louella Hill's Cheesemaking for Kids Class.
Jalapeños seem like the perfect foil to the richness of eggs and the Bacon Biscuits we served for brunch, and they are, as far as my tastebuds were concerned. But the recipe also calls for half and half, which makes this egg dish just about as rich and fatty as the bacon biscuits alongside.
Usually I make my own pie crust or use one from the freezer, but this time I took the author's advice and bought one pre-made from the store. It's a good thing I did, since prep for this recipe took a while, leaving about two minutes to roll out the dough and assemble the pie before kid-duty commenced.
This is my favorite recent trifecta (or triple win): Mexican Green Rice, Lazy Chiles Rellenos, Yellow Indian Woman beans. I only wish my kids loved it as much as I do. They routinely ask for the beans by name and always manage to choke down a bite each of the rice and rellenos, so I'll call it good.
