This salad is a burst of freshness in the darkness of winter. Here in Florida it’s citrus season and I love to try to use all the delicious fresh oranges I can get. Naval oranges, tangerines, Valencia oranges all work, but I love to add the color and sweetness of blood oranges too. You can usually find them this time of year. Give them a try, I know you will not be disappointed!

Fresh Beet Salad with Oranges and Gorgonzola is beautiful and tasty. The colorful beets meld perfectly with the juicy oranges, crunchy walnuts, and the creamy earthy Gorgonzola. When you put everything over the bright mixed greens the colors pop.

Not only is this salad gorgeous, it is also easy and healthy. Beets are really good for you! They contain folic acid, iron, and calcium. Oranges have a ton of vitamin C which may help prevent colds and flu.

So give this salad a try and don’t be shy, let me know what  you think in the comments below.

A Classic Winter Breakfast

The Teacher's Table

I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on a large farm. It would start snowing before Halloween and the snow wouldn’t stop sometimes until April. Needless to say, I was always freezing. Mr. Teacher is always teasing me because I love the sun now. I soak it up like a lizard. I like to say it’s because I never warmed up and that is why I now live in Southern Florida.

Anyway, as a child my dad would make us breakfast on the weekends. Our favorite thing was always Old School Chipped Beef Gravy  served with 2 slices of toasted white bread that was broken into chunks in a big bowl with lots of freshly cracked black pepper. We would eat it in the living room while watching cartoons together.

To this day it brings back memories of being a little girl and the frigid winters up north. While it doesn’t always get cold down here in the sunshine state, I still make this breakfast a few times a year. I think you will enjoy it too.  When you want a hearty, filling, tasty, quick breakfast that will feed several people without spending a fortune, make Old School Chipped Beef Gravy.
