This is how just about every dinner starts at my house in the winter:
Its really quite amazing the things you can do with these three things. Stirfry with rice. Boil and its soup. My latest favorite is steam in stock and the puree into a yummy sauce that goes over just about anything. Where would I be without carrots and potatoes??
I must say though, we had some peas from the freezer (which I ration and cherish during the winter) and boy did they taste good!!! Its the thing about seasonal eating in the northeast. By the time March rolls around we are really craving the green stuff. Thankfully due to the hoophouse we are not too far from fresh salad greens at that point.
But this picture--its something I get pretty used to seeing for the next couple months. So if anyone has any ideas to share about what to do with carrots, onions, potatoes and the occasional celery...just drop it in the comment box.
