Ingredients:

4 handfuls beet greens, swiss chard, spring greens, spinach, or watercress

1 pound beets, washed and cut into small wedges

2 medium dried guajilo chiles (or substitute New Mexico chiles)

2 garlic cloves, peeled and quartered

2 ounces goat cheese

salt to taste

1/4 cup sherry vinegar

roasting pan

aluminum foil

oven

frying pan

food processor

Cooking instruction summary:

Procedures 1 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Toss the beet wedges with olive oil and salt and arrange on a roasting pan or baking sheet. Cover tightly with foil and cook in the oven until a fork easily penetrates, 30-45 minutes. Remove the cover and cook for an additional 10 minutes to caramelize them. 2 In the meantime, heat the oil in a small skillet and add the garlic. While it is heating, tear off the stems from the chiles and split them open, shaking out the seeds. When the garlic is sizzling vigorously the oil is hot enough; lay the chiles flat in the oil and toast for about 30 seconds, until they smell "toasty" and and insides have turned lighter in color. Remove the pan from the heat. 3 Carefully transfer the chiles to a blender or small food processor and add the vinegar plus a teaspoon of salt. Blend or process for 30 seconds. Once the oil has cooled somewhat (at least 5 minutes) add it along with the garlic, then blend until smooth and emulsified. It may take a minute or more. Season to taste with salt. 4 If using the beet greens or Swiss chard, add them to the skillet with 1/4 cup of water and a pinch of salt and cover. Cook over medium heat until wilted, then uncover and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Divide amongst plates, top with the beets and drizzle with plenty of dressing. Crumble goat cheese on the plate and serve.

Food Joke

What to do when your dinner is interrupted: - Ask them if they've got beer - Start speaking in tongues - Tell them that person doesn't live there anymore. Give them the number of an adult service and tell them that it is her/his new number - Tell them that you're not there right now - Ask them if they accept coupons - Start selling them something else - If someone calls soliciting donations, tell them you're poor and ask for money instead - Start preaching your religion to them - Pretend you're a recording and say "The number you have reached is not in service. Please check the number and dial again, or talk to your operator for assistance. Recording A4." Extra points for imitating the 3 rising tones at the beginning. - Try to hypnotise the telemarketer - Play a recording of a busy signal - Put on some really annoying music and put the phone up to the stereo. - Ask the telemarketer if he/she is single. Then try hitting on him/her. Be sure to mention your various medical problems, your fascination with odd smells and your shrine to the Lawrence Welk Show. - Use one of those voice changers to disguise your voice - Rap all your replies to the telemarketer's questions, especially if you're white. - Ask the TM if he/she minds if you talk to him/her on the toilet. Then take a plastic Heinz ketchup bottle and squeeze out ketchup repeatedly - Speak in ragga chant - Try to rhyme with everything the telemarketer says - Tell the TM that the person he/she is trying to reach is a victim of black magic and has been turned into a poodle. - Tell the TM that the person s/he is trying to reach has passed on, and that you're the ghost of him/her. - Sell them on the "value of high colonics". Explain your "dedication to good health" in your most convincing, passionate voice.
