Breakfast in bed!
While Bizzi stands guard, Natalie is served a veggie/cheese omelet,
fruit scone and apple butter, milk, and a fresh-picked satsuma orange
Her father made coffee and brought it up to her
we used both golden and red beets for the cake.
Later, we roasted the greens and made a warm salad for dinner
Natalie scrapes the vanilla beans from the pod
creating a wonderful aroma!
using a spoon to chop fresh ginger
Let me go on record to say that a ricer does NOT work well for cooked beets.
This was my idea, and it was a bad one. We resorted to the food processor soon after this shot.
Think fake murder scene........
here are the finished baked goods
Natalie's serving is on the red plate, and it blends pretty well, doesn't it?
