Today, I copied my barbecue recipe for a friend. Lots of tomatoes in there.
Then, I boiled up some beets. I sliced them and scraped away the skins, getting my left fingers noticeably pinkened.
Then, I made some red sauce. I had purchased some ready-to-prepare dried red chile, and I followed the instructions. It became thick, and bubbled and splattered. I tasted it -- a little too hot for my palate. So I added a can of tomato paste, and a little water. Tasted it, and added a little more salt.
So I've had quite the morning for red food. Don't know if it means anything.
It was fun.
