Roasted Beets for Easter

Roasted Beets for Easter

We hope you had a great Easter weekend with your family and friends.  We gathered at Grandma Parke’s house today to celebrate with the family.  One thing I always look forward to is Grandma Parke’s decorations.  Her decorations are always great.  Every table had a centerpiece with some “Easter grass” in different colors with lambs, birds or eggs.  Too cute.

On Easter, everyone brings a dish to share.  This year, I brought roasted beets with yellow peppers and strawberry onions.  It’s super easy and I love the color combination.  To make this dish,  just cut up the beets, yellow peppers and onions in cubes, then drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.  Season with salt to taste, and broil in the oven for about 20-30 minutes.  I turn them half way through.  If you try the beets, and they taste like dirt, then they are not done.  Cook them for a bit longer until they taste sweet.  That’s how you know they are done.  ;)

My plate consisted of ham, smoked pork (made by Matt), broccoli salad, squash casserole, broccoli casserole, and my roasted beet dish.  Can you tell I love veggies?

While everyone was eating, Piper decided the pool needed some cleaning.

Jordan brought a delicious strawberry pizza made with a shortbread cookie crust.  It was delicious.  After dessert, it was time for some Egg Hunting! 033113_7 033113_8 033113_9 033113_10

Hi! I'm Xiomara. My love for strawberries started at a young age. As a child growing up in Puerto Rico, eating strawberries was a special treat. Fast forward to 2007, we packed our home and moved to Plant City, the winter strawberry capital of the world.

  1. Lorena Mccorkindale says:

    Beetroot can be peeled, steamed, and then eaten warm with butter as a delicacy; cooked, pickled, and then eaten cold as a condiment; or peeled, shredded raw, and then eaten as a salad. Pickled beets are a traditional food of the American South. It is also common in Australia and New Zealand for pickled beetroot to be served on a hamburger.`’.;
