Tired of waiting? . . .  Lemonade!

It was raining on and off all day, but not at all throughout the ceremony.  Just in case, however, Shannon’s father had set up a tent.

Here come the guys!

 Oh my goodness . . .  SHE's coming soon.



        From Bohdan Zahny’s THE BEST OF UKRAINIAN CUISINE

1 ½ lbs beets
¼ cup canola oil (plus 2 tbsp for the onions)
1 ½ lbs onions
½ cup tomato paste
1 tbsp sugar
1/8 tsp pepper
¾ tsp salt

·        Chop onions.  Sauté in 2 tbsp oil over medium heat for 5 minutes.  Then stir constantly for another 10 minutes to brown.
·        Peel beets and julienne in slivers.  Sauté in ¼ cup oil for 5 minutes.  Stir in the browned onions, tomato paste, salt, sugar, and pepper and take off the heat.

* Bohdan serves the beets cold but they are DELICIOUS hot, as well.
