Can't Beet This

Dining alfresco with a crisp bite to the air and a pink tinge in the sky.  I've planted some fall crop veggies in the raised beds and ritually browse the market for fall produce too.

Beets head my shopping list every couple of days. I can't get enough of Ina Garten's roasted beets! We've enjoyed them at dinner for nights in a row! They're quite the taste sensation as a salad with goat cheese, apples (and I've added figs) ~

Along with cool air and a Fall feeling, we appreciate a hearty meat for dinner. This evening I fried lamb chops in cast iron ~

Meat in general, and lamb particularly are on the chopping block from our diets here. 

And, while the carbs on our menus should also be cut down - we can never resist temptation of this beautiful loaf of deliciousness ~

It's a work in progress to get Hubby healthy and for both of us to maintain that same lifestyle for the future too. We're on the right path. Hubby is improving still. You can't beet beat that either!
