Mystery Ingredient Monday #5

When Jessica announced Beets as her MI, I thought of the thrills this place can bring to one in need of a B&B.  It has beds and serves breakfast. 

Yes, Dwight Schrute, The Beet Farm and and his BBBG:
Battlestar Galatica.
Always a good time. While hunting for the image above I found this Trip Advisory page for all you Office fans. Enjoy.

Moving on to Beets of the roasted and tossed into a salad with asparagus, spinach and basalmic vinagare. Yum! 
Thank goodness my husband likes to cook and saved my rump on this one. All I was able to do this weekend was nurse, change and hold the 25LB sack of potatoes baby who wanted no one but me.
Robert made Bietole al Forno. We substituted the frisee salad for fresh spinach. It was delicious and can be served hot or cold. We ate it both ways and it was wonderful. 

My one of my sisters made a Roaster Root Medley at Christmas time. We didn't make it this week but have made it in the past. It is awesome and a great dish for fall/winter.
Roaster Root Medley: Serving size 4 so, make more
1 Med. sized Yam-washed and cut into 1 inch chunks
2 Lag. carrot, washed and cut into 1 inch chunks 
2 Lag. beet, washed and cut into 1 inch chunks
1 yellow onion, peeled and cut into large wedges
4 tsp. EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
salt to taste

Preheat oven to 400. 
In bowl, toss all ingredients together. Spread on a cookie sheet and bake for 40 to 50 min. or until tender, turning over once or twice to prevent burning. 

Looking forward to seeing what you all came up with. Go link up with Jessica and visit Anne(If you want to play along but don't have a blog, instagram or tweet it #mysteryingredient, or tag us in a facebook post about your dish so we can marvel your creativity.) 

Next weeks MI

Hope you all have a fun and safe Fourth of July. Now, Go Fourth and be inspired. See you next week here on my blog. 


  1. Oh thank God. Peaches I can work with.

  2. Well Done, Brother, well done. Mom told me she thought you'd be making the Roaster Root Medley. Guess she was wrong. Hope you weren't thinking of making Peach Bombs, were you?

  3. I think Peach Bombs should be off limits for all of us. :) Our CSA is delivering a peach pie with the next box of produce. It'll be my ace in a hole if this week is like last week.

    And THANK YOU! for putting up the Roasted Root Medley recipe. After eating the leftovers at your house over Christmas I've wanted that recipe with a burning passion.

    1. I double the carrots and sweet potato, omit the onion, and assume 4 tbsp means a generous coating. I didn't know it was an actual recipe, that's why I never shared

  4. Peaches! Everyone likes those, right? Even my four-year-old eats them, and he only eats, like, 10 things. :)

  5. Haha! Can't talk about beets without mentioning dwight!

    Yay for peaches next week!
