Oranges, apples, beets, carrots...sounds pretty colorful, once again. All the colors seem to make food all the more appetizing. I think I will try several of the suggested recipes, like the potato salad with Bleu cheese and the baked apples with honey--slurrrp! I had made a "Red, White and Bleu salad" over the summer for a 4th of July potluck that was a big hit, so I will compare my recipe with the one on SLO Veg. I know I have an orange chicken recipe that calls for blood oranges. Looks like Chinese this week, so I'd best check on my supply of rice. I know I have some Jasmine rice on hand, though. The shrimp and noodles with bok choy sounds delicious, also, and is probably pretty quick to make. Good for a week night.

  1. Just found a recipe that will make good use of the apples and oranges: Apple Ambrosia Salad from Trisha Yearwood. It calls for coconut and pineapple, too. Maybe I will make it for Superbowl Sunday.
