The Easter Basket of special foods (described below) is arranged on Holy Saturday, and taken to church, where a special blessing ceremony with prayers and sprinkling with Holy Water, is performed by the parish priest.
Summer has been technically over several weeks ago, but in my garden, summer is just coming to an end.
Fewer flowers are opening up, more and more plants are drying off, and my vegetable garden is not producing new crops…just letting the remaining ones to complete its cycle.
We had few very cold nights already, but today was a gorgeous day; so with the help of my camera, I captured the remaining beauties in my garden.
I use beets in soups, borscht, and salads.
Today I will share a recipe for a delicious red beet salad.
Even if you never were a big fan of red beets, you should give this one a try, and I am sure you will LOVE it.
I had this salad at my friend’s house, and could not believe that red beets were the main ingredient, since all the other flavors added a very unique taste, and texture to this salad.
I will list each harvested vegetable individually, and link it to my favorite recipes posted previously, for your cooking convenience and pleasure.
If you like my posts, and/or pictures, please share them with your family and friends, through the above links to Facebook, Pinterest, Google, Stumble Upon, and Twitter. THANK YOU 🙂
Most Catholics already celebrated Easter this year on March 27th.
However Orthodox Christians, and some Catholics whose churches still follow the Julian Calendar, will celebrate Easter this Sunday, May 1st.
