Each time I’ve surveyed my ginormous mountain of veggies these past few weeks, I cannot help but think of the cover of our own local Diane Morgan’s new cookbook, Roots.  See the similarities?!?  Good thing there are many such foodie geniuses who recognize the allure and earthy goodness of the root vegetables that grow so abundantly in the Northwest.  Amazing, the transformation that can take place from some of these hairy, knobby, truly foreign looking beings to a thing of beauty and deliciousness at the dinner table!  Add in the locally foraged mushroom from Hood River Organic (and the decadent baguettes they deliver!), and we’ve got ourselves a week of dinners not-to-be-missed!
