Beets Left Out Over Night?

Well, foods left at room temp are in the "danger zone" 40°-140°
I always err on the side of caution myself...

Beets Left Out Over Night?

Oooops...

After roasting some lovely organic red beets last night I forgot to refrigerate them.

Do they need to be thrown away now?

My guess, yes. Since they are starchy like potatoes and left out potatoes are a no-no.

Thoughts?

TIA & Happy Cooking!

Austin restaurant suggestions for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day?

I am also looking for some place to go and so far, The Driskill and Trio are my top choices (although they are both buffets) that are open on Christmas Day:

Healthy Meal Planning

I'm in need of ideas for weekly meal planning that is not too much for just 2.

I am okay with having leftovers for the next day only or a dish that I can freeze & my husband can take it to work & reheat.

I am trying to reduce my waste & lose a few pounds.

Any ideas?

TIA

LV to Sedona & back again...

As mentioned, I do plan to go to Beaver Creek Brewery which I learned of from this site.
Clearly I was looking for some more information...

Thanks for the help!

Is Burger Stop (Vegas) still open?

Oooh, where might I find the Bahn Mi shop? I always have to make a drive up to Spring Mtn, when the craving strikes...

LV to Sedona & back again...

Looks like Beaver Creek Brewery in Flagstaff might be a good lunch option for our trip into Sedona.

Any other lunch suggestions along the way for our trip back to LV or vice versa?

Thanks in advance-

Sedona Farmers Market

Not to hijack this thread, but when does the Farmer's Market take place in Sedona?
We'll be there next month & it would be great to visit since living in Las Vegas we lack such goodies.

Vegas sausages?

Whole Foods, Trader Joes and/or Fresh & Easy.
I assume some kind of Italian type would do?

Western Carib cruise

In regards to Roatan, that was what I suspected.
I suppose I have visions of fish being cooked right off the beach that I hand selected from a near by fisherman... : )
That would work for me.

Have a great trip.

Christmas Dinnerish...

In total there my be 5 of us. The tenderloin roast isn't very big & I was thinking of getting 2 racks of lamb or less. I also figured steak & eggs for breakfast the next day...

Christmas Dinnerish...

Thanks for the helpful replies thus far.

I do plan on purchasing some more sweets.

I still don't know what to serve with my veggies or beef for sure?

Christmas Dinnerish...

Since it is going to be my husband & a few friends, I figured let's not have a whole sit down meal, but rather all of the things that we like to eat & can munch on most of the late afternoon/evening. So, this is what I've come up with so far:

Assorted Cheeses- Humboldt Fog, English Cheddar, Manchego
(with fruit/membrillo paste/fig jam,marcona almonds)
***I'll add a few more my next trip to the store

Assorted Cured Meats

Marinated Artichokes

Assorted Greek Olives

Duck Pate

Crudite Platter- (figured there needed to be some veg like matter)
***I need a dip or sauce still

Beef Tenderloin Roast- Thought I'd roast it, slice thinly & serve with some small rolls/horseradish mayo or cream & arugula
***Any other suggestions?

Rack of Lamb- Cut into individual chops, served with a mint chimmichurri

Cuban Flan for Dessert

***The idea is to graze for the later part of the day, so I need things that won't be affected too greatly by sitting at room temp....

Any thoughts? Looks like I've gone kind of Spanish/Latin...

Tapas, particularly w/Marcona almonds

I agree that is all they need! Try some membrillo paste, chorizo & manchego along side. Yummm...

help grimaldis or settebellos

This may be way too late, but...

It depends on what you are looking for. Both offer completely different styles of pizza.
One more NY style, the other true Italian neopolitan style.

I say you do a bit of a pizza tour & have both.
