This morning a package of “Love Beets”, organic cooked beets ready for anything were left outside our door. No note, no card, who could have left them? Some girls get roses but we much prefer beets.  They inspired our lunch today: a salad of Sea Island Red Peas, celery, and scallions in vinaigrette; the afore mentioned beets in olive oil, lemon juice, and black pepper; boiled eggs with a smear of cold, thick sour cream; garden lettuce and a couple of slices of smoked salmon.

“You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.”—Julia Child
