IMG_20180831_114629.jpg
This vegan/vegetarian dish makes a nice side for your fall dinners.
Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds beets, well rinsed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 5 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted margarine
  • Grated peel of 2 oranges
Materials:
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Medium saucepan with lid
  • Knife
  • Grater
  • Heavy saucepan
  • Whisk
Directions:
1.  Place beets in medium saucepan, cover with cold water.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until tender, 40 to 50 minutes.  Drain and rinse under cold water to cool.  Slip off skins; cut beets into 1/4-inch dice.  You should have 4 cups.  Set aside.
2.  Combine sugar, vinegar, orange juice, cornstarch, salt and pepper in heavy saucepan.  Whisk well and bring to boil over medium heat, whisking constantly until mixture is clear and thickened, 4 to 5 minutes.  Whisk in margarine and orange peel.  Cook just until margarine has melted.  Remove from heat pour sauce over beets.  Toss gently.  Serve hot or at room temperature.

 

After dinner, why not curl up with a good book? May I suggest Traveler’s Zone?

Chris Pavesic continues the amazing story of Cami Malifux with Book 2 of the Revelation Chronicles.

Escape from a world of darkness into a magical realm of limitless adventure.

In Starter Zone Cami kept herself and her younger sister Alby alive in a post-apocalyptic world, facing starvation, violence, and death on a daily basis. Caught by the military and forcefully inscribed, Cami manages to scam the system and they enter the Realms, a Virtual Reality world, as privileged Players rather than slaves. They experience a world of safety, plenty, and magical adventure.

In the Traveler’s Zone magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as Cami continues her epic quest to navigate the Realms and build a better life for her family. But an intrusion from her old life threatens everything she has gained and imperils the entire virtual world.

Time to play the game.
