So, beets...

I know I said was going to keep this blog updated with all the exciting and up to date veggie trial news but the beets weren't too interesting. I made a raw beet, feta, and pear salad that required a great deal of julienne-ing on my part, so it felt very labor intensive for a cold salad. Also the whole thing ended up pink probably due to over vigorous stirring on my part. In the end, it was pretty tasty and once I get a mandolin (or I am in the mood to cut a bitch) I will make it again.

As an aside, plain stand-alone raw beets have a faint hint of vomit in there flavor and I would not recommend them. It seems that the preferred method for beet consumption is roasted so at some point this week I will probably roast the two left over beets I have hanging out in the fridge.

This week I just realized I have brought home two new veggies. Brussel sprouts which I have eaten one previous time in my life when I was maybe 7 and fennel which I have personally never worked with but I am pretty sure I have tasted at some point. I am actually going to subject Walter to the brussel sprouts the first night of his visit so maybe we we'll have a guest vegetable post. Well, hope everyone has a good week, I am off to clean the bathrooms.

Cleaning the bathroom is like being nauseous. You know if you throw up you'll totally feel better but you just don't want to. You know if you clean the bathroom you'll feel way better but it's a bitch to get motivated about.

Then one should clean the bathroom AND throw up in order to achieve nirvana?
