Cub Scouts & Random Musings...
About six years ago, we went to a now defunct restaurant in Taos, called Momentitas de la Vida. They served a great root mash of parsnips, turnips & rutabaga. I did a version last night, with three kinds of fingerling potatoes & a rutabaga.
For the main course, I sauteed some boneless chicken, & made a lemon cream sauce that was to die for. I let the chicken simmer in the sauce. With broccoli on the side, it was a lovely dinner. The best part was, I made a fresh kale (thanks to my friend Santa) salad. You cut off the thick veins/stems & use only the frilly parts, cut in bite-size pieces. I added chopped green apple, dried cherries, and tossed it in a balsamic vinaigrette. The salad-phobic monkey loved it!! Miracle!
