I know I said more from DC was next, but the Pepper poll has ended. Y’all like ’em sweet. I still like spicy just a tish more than the sweets. I don’t know how Ted voted. I’m sure he’ll have something to say about it.
So, now it’s time to tell us about beets. You either love ’em or you hate ’em. I love them. I love them best served at room temperature on a bed of arugula with goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. Fresh beets mind you. Canned are just nasty.
I know this, the spawn will vote “Hell No.” A couple of years ago, I decided to roast some beets at home. They walked into the house from school and immediately gagged at the smell. Then they ran from the house screaming. It looked something like this (just imagine the big Star Wars foot is a giant roasting beet).
Even Rufus Dragon refused to try them. This is his protest.
They will all be relieved to know that we are not growing them this year. This year.
