How gorgeous can you get? Yum!
I’ve been waiting all year for them. I don’t really know what’s wrong with me exactly, but I’m obsessed with roasting beets and eating them. Warning to newbies: your pee might change colors and be slightly pink. Last year I thought I had some kind of infection, but this year I was not worried one bit. I roast them with olive oil and salt. I also fried up the greens (I think one of you kind readers told me last summer that the tops of beets are edible) and pureed them into tomato sauce (another tip from a reader).

I just don’t want to see that green again. I’m sorry, but it was not my favorite.
Lettuce is a far more comfortable green for me. It’s also fun to shoot with a camera (yeah, I’m weird).
