This -n- That (II)

Rain kept the boy home today, so we treated ourselves to a very late breakfast at the diner, and followed up with "city errands." These activities filled a good part of the day. Even so, I did a little painting, a lot of paper work,  made a large pan of homemade baked macaroni and cheese, and roasted some dandelion roots.

That's what I ... made today!

Ryan & Michele - I roast them til they're dry - or mostly dry. I finish drying in the dehydrator if needed.

Then I grind the roots as I am ready to use them - as a beverage, much like tea or coffee! Many folk who enjoy coffee also enjoy a roasted dandelion infusion.

It's FAR more palatable, IMO, than the straight-up dried root.

I love it! It's good AND good for you!

I have been drinking dandelion root for ages. I buy mine though. Silly really considering I am always pulling dandelions out of the garden. Can you use any old dandelion root?

Give me a heads up when you have finished your black gesso pages. I would love to see what you end up with.

I have to say that a late breakfast in a diner on a rainy day sounds absolutely dreamy. I love to watch the rain outside and listen to diner sounds inside. Sip coffee and eat something to rich and fattening. Yea, sounds mighty fine...
