Change Of Pace

It’s a new year and we’re off running, trying to find a place to live. We like our rental house, but the landlords decided to let their son have it. So we need to find a place to live, pack, and move by February 15. We have looked at 30 places so far, with limited success.

My days are focused on unpacking from our holiday trip to visit my family, putting new presents away, and starting to sort stuff for Goodwill. However, I do have a moment to post a really simple recipe from a holiday dinner. My mother found the beets and we tried a recipe on the package. I’m not a regular beet eater because I don’t quite know what to do with them. This dish was savory and so easy to make. I didn’t calculate the Weight Watchers points yet; given it uses butter and cream, it’s not a low-point dish.

Red Beets with Thyme Cream

2 8 oz. pkg of Earth Exotics Diced Red Beets
4 shallots finely chopped
3/4 cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp. fresh thyme
4 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
salt and pepper

In a medium sauté pan, brown shallots in butter, add fresh thyme and heavy cream. Add salt & pepper, bring mixture to a simmer, mix in beets. Let simmer approximately 8-10 minutes, finish by adding red wine vinegar.

You can probably use 2 cups of diced red beets that have been briefly steamed.
