Golden beet kitties for lunch – surprise!

18 Jan

This week, I made three different types of chicken.  I roasted half of the chicken wings with the usual salt, pepper, organic poultry seasoning, while the other half, I seasoned with a mixture of 2 tbs soy sauce, 1 tbs mirin, squeeze of 1/4 lemon, and I baked both at 325 in a lidded corningware for 45 minutes.

I also roasted yellow beets – they were pretty large, the size of a baseball, so I left them in the oven for an additional 20 minutes.  Once the beets were removed from the heat, I allowed them to cool until I could handle, and slipped the skins off of them with my hands. 

Today’s lunch included:

Soy-sauce-mirin-lemon juice seasoned drumette and wingette.  The soy sauce and mirin carmelize deliciously – the soy sauce takes on a slightly nutty and fragrant taste, and mixes well with the sweetness of the mirin.

Golden beet cut into cat shapes.  The girls had the “cut-out” part of the beets with breakfast – they were amazed to see how sunny-yellow the beets were.

Grape tomatoes

Celery sticks
