As we move along the FFwD process, I have become more confident about knowing when to give things a shot and when to pawn them off onto those who might be better positioned to enjoy the fruits of my labor.
Case in point: Beets.
I like them baked into chips and don't mind them shredded into cake.
If there is another way that I would tolerate them, I haven't found it yet.
I want to like them, I really do. And I've almost talked myself into thinking I can like them.
But the cold, hard truth is that I don't like them.
Maybe it's leftover trauma from my childhood... They don't rank quite as high as my aversions to shredded coconut, ambrosia type salads, liver and black raisins. But they definitely fall solidly in the "top 10" list.
So, I make them; but figure out how to NOT eat them.
Anyhoo, here it is.
I made it. But the "Sam, I Am" in me didn't try it. The Dude and Runner Girl loved it. The Karate Kid was also on team "Me no like beets".
It's a good thing someone likes them, because I have a feeling that a healthy bunch (no pun intended) will show up in my CSA shares over the course of this summer...
So, TTFN (ta ta for now - in case you don't speak Tigger).
We're in the home stretch before graduation and vacation - so life is beyond crazy... I could really use a clone for the next few weeks. (Preferably one that I could send to work in my place- just sayin')
One bloggers take on the recipe can be found here. And Dorie posts a similar beet salad with some lovely additions here.
