Do any of you watch The Office? Can you ever look at beets without thinking of Dwight? Did you see the episode where Angela looked like this:
Hilarious, but totally creepy!
I'm happy to report that I ate some beets and I liked it! I found a recipe that utilized the greens, too, because I don't like waste and I do like greens. You can find it here.
I picked beets because they are the only vegetable I've ever had that I didn't like. My mom used to make them from a can. Gag. They made me want to hurl, but my brother liked them, so we had them on his birthday a few times.
I've never had them as an adult, but they use them on Iron Chef, so I HAD to believe that fresh beets were yummier than grody canned ones. And, hooray, I was right! Even the kids liked them!
I can now say the only food I don't like is fish and black licorice.
