Use Up Those Root Vegetables: Beet and Carrot Fritters

This week on Foodie Underground I’ve got an easy recipe for Beet and Carrot Fritters, because we can never have too many root vegetable recipes. Especially this time of year as the winter winds down and we start to get sick just at the thought of them. But don’t worry, all that seasonal spring bounty (asparagus! radishes!) is just around the corner.

Winter Sunset

with 3 comments

Frost covered the ground for the larger part of the day, a white dusting remaining in cold corners protected by the shade of trees. Typical Pacific Northwest gray rain clouds were traded for clear winter skies, a brisk nip in the air. On beautiful days like this, it’s clear that the evening landscape shouldn’t be missed, and we packed up a thermos of tea and headed for one of the many rocky beaches of the Puget Sound.

Quiet and clear, as afternoon turned into dusk, the seasonal sun set, with warm colors reflecting off of soft clouds, turning the sky into a winter painting. With the setting sun, the air turned colder, and steam rose from our tea cups as we looked out over the calm waters and breathed in the winds of the season.

That’s how you should spend Christmas Day…
