Potatoes and beets

Guess what's for dinner.

One of my favorite things about August is eating new potatoes, and this year I seem to have a HUGE crop of potatoes.  I just boil them for 15 minutes or so and then add parsley and butter - lots of butter.

In years past my beets never seem to do all that well.  They always bolt before they get big.  But this year I planted them further apart and only a few bolted.  For beets I like to roast them with cumin seeds and oil and then add in the greens for the last 5 minutes or so.  Othertimes I boil them and then add the greens at the last minute and then butter and salt.  I'm not sure how I'll cook them tonight.
