Ruby Tuesday brings the red out of nearly anything. Food around here gives us a more organic ruby feast, not just for the eyes, but the palette as well. A smattering of color here in many guises. There is carrot soup, say, easy to make and it is almost a Crayola orange-red.
Mexican lasagna, well, is probably not authentic. But it offers red for an appropriate Tuesday hue
Chili nachos were a New Year's Eve treat, and the chili has a tomato soup base and with red Kidney Beans, you know the coloration is perfect.
Not to be outdone, the kids had often experimented with melted chocolate chips and...oyster crackers. They used croutons once, and oddly enough, that combination wasn't bad. The red is represented by the store brand on the bag
Finally, I show last year's hot peppers. These chilies are what we hope for from the harvest of our garden this year. Yep, edible reds are a fine apertif - Bon Appétit and happy RT!
