Bright alert! Best put on sunglasses! ;-> (waving to Liz)
This was last night’s dinner. I made some pita breads, which turned out okay, but with the high proportion of whole wheat flour, they weren’t as nummy as I had hoped. But they made great hamburger buns! There is another batch of bread in the breadmaker right now, which will provide a pizza for lunch and six more buns.
Red peppers (and green ones, too) are still on sale locally, so we are gobbling up more than our share, I’m sure. There seems to be a disproportionate allocation of red:green peppers on my plate. I think there was some filching going on when my back was turned! Raw red pepper slices are irresistible to DH! There seemed to be more green than red when I popped them into the frying pan when the burgers came out.
The green leafy stuff is beet greens. What do they taste like? Hmmm – hard to say. Not like kale, chard, spinach, or any of the other leafy greens, but they are mild and quite nice. Chemotherapy has a quite nasty effect on one’s elimination system (to be somewhat indelicate), and beets (and presumably the greens as well) provide a very effective “nudge”, if you get my drift.
DH added mustard, peperoncini, and an abundant amount of Mexican scallions to his portion.
After this “portrait” was taken, the tomatoes went inside the bun to join my burger, melted Cheddar cheese, relish and catsup for a very enjoyable meal.
