End of Sunday Dinner, Saveur Style

One of my favorite food magazines is Saveur - they're like the National Geographic of food: real people in interesting places, photographed so engagingly.  I was an adult before I realized there were articles in National Geographic too, not just photos.

This photo, a September Sunday dinner, is in that style - unposed, compelling, telling a story.

And here is the pickle tray up close.  My husband pickled some beet stems with siriacha and spices.  The flavor was fantastic, they looked pretty in the jar, but the stems themselves were tough. 

I loved the pickling brine so much that I boiled beets and put them in it for round two.  Ben requested some of the pickle brine in his cup at supper last night and we laughed and said, sure.


  1. Good for you for saying SURE! :-)

  2. I've never read that magazine, but am quite intrigued by your description of it as the Nat Geo for food. I'll have to get my hands on a copy.


I enjoy the conversation in the comments - thank you for that. I will answer your questions here in the comments. Please note that I don't want the world wide web to know my family's surnames and location.
