subliminal cooking

So last week I find the need to go to Whole Foods for my specialty food items that I cannot get at my local market. After 90++$$$ later and a good 45 minute drive, I'm in the kitchen putting away the stuff and see that I bought apricot juice ???? excuse me - why the hell did I buy that? Well a day later I am at my local market and I see fresh beets and glob on to them. Love them and if you haven't roasted fresh beets do so they are amazing. Anyhooooo, taking the beets out of the bag I have a flash back of Michael Chiarello napa style cooking beets and pouring over them a reduced apricot juice. Dang subliminal cooking !!! So I go get the juice I had put away, pour two cans, they are those mini cans, in a sauce pan and begin the reduction. In the meantime I carmelize some vidalia onions and bake the beets. Beets are done, onions are carmelized, sauce is almost reduced, so I add a bit a butter then pour over the beets and grate some nutmeg on top. Dang yummy..........what else did we have aaahhhh oh I had cooked a small pork tenderloin on the grill and smashed a few spuds with some olive oil and lots afresh ground pepper . very tasty........

stay tuna'd............................
