i couldn’t resist! ha ha. so beets, do you like them? if you don’t have you tasted one as an adult, or is it a dislike leftover from childhood? it seemed to be the general consensus that beets around these parts that beets suck. i’m posting today in defense of the beet! not only do they taste good, they are good for you! read more about that here.
my exposure to beets as a kid comes from my mother. this in the form of her ritual of sliced canned beets dipped in mayonnaise. for some reason i thought my mom eating beets dipped in mayo was tre sophisticated, i would often bring it up in conversation and tell people, oh yeah, we eat beets. dipped in mayo. until on day, my mom took me aside and explained that she really just ate beets that way as an excuse to eat mayo. hey mom, since that time, i have learned that in france, they dip carrots in mayo! so mom you were on to something.
