Big Catch up….

I can’t believe that it has been so long since I posted. I am still taking photos every day. There are days where it is a quick shot but anyway… Here are last weeks photos.

I spent Sunday cooking for the week. This is the start of a date/lemon slice that I make.

I went to the fruit market this morning and found beetroot was $3 for as many as you can fit into a bag.

Now this afternoon I have about 3 kg of pickled beetroot in the fridge, beetroot in the oven roasting with our dinner and the leftover we made into a Turkish dip. This is just before stirring the dip as I am walking around the house asking my 2 teens for a photo backdrop. DD2 suggested the lounge carpet and actually this was perfect as it came from Western Turkmen China. And the dip is very tasty. It contains yoghurt, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and cummin. Yum!

Enjoy the weekend and Valentines. For us though tomorrow is Chinese New Year and welcoming year of the Tiger.

This looks so delicous. I think beetroot must be what we call beets--they look to be the same color.
