We had a rough week in our house for many reasons, but the worst is that Rick got a call with very bad news just as he was walking out of the woods and packing up his hunting gear. In the process of rushing off to the hospital, his brand new bow was destroyed. Brand New. Very Expensive. Destroyed.
I’ve been trying to cut down on the amount of starch and grains I eat. The problem is that on these crisp fall evenings, I really like hot, creamy comfort food. So I’ve been mashing all sorts of things, cauliflower and celery root being my two favorites. Until tonight.
Tonight I discovered braised radishes, and I couldn’t be happier. I love the radishes from our garden, but I can only eat so many in my salads. I’ve never really known what else to do with them. But we’re about to have a bumper crop come in and I was looking for ideas. This recipe originated from Suzanne Sommers, although I altered it a bit. Let me just say Yum! I think I have a new favorite root vegetable. And it’s straight from the garden. What a bonus.
