Tuna steaks and turnip gratin
A good wintry dinner. Slice thin red potatoes, red turnips, white onion, and garlic; layer in a cast-iron dutch oven with grated cheese. Cover with 1 cup cream, sprinkle more cheese on top, and bake one hour, with the lid removed only for the last ten minutes.
Marinade the tuna steaks in olive oil mixed with thyme, black pepper, and whole garlic. Broil ten to fifteen minutes, depending on the thickness of the steaks and how well-done you like your tuna.
