So, I got a lot of comments about my beet aversion. Thanks for the tips. My main problem with beets is the bloodiness of them. They bleed everywhere! Like a still beating heart ripped from a child's body. They are pure evil! Yikes, I'm getting myself into a lather again when I wanted to share something positive about the evil bulbs. It is possible to turn these vile roots . . .
into these luscious treats:
Yes! I turned evil into good! And it was all thanks to your comments. Well, sort of. See, the bloodiness factor made me dismiss all the well intended tips about roasting them. What, so they can bleed all over my plate and I can swallow a mouthful of blood? No thanks. But, someone mentioned making beet chips. That seemed bloodless enough. So as I was typing "beet ch" into Google, the predictive text filled out the rest for me and as "beet chips" but underneath beet chips was "beet chocolate cake recipe." Friends, I am but a mere human woman. When the magic gods behind Google's predictive text generator present me with a chocolatey gift for my good intentions I must only be grateful and obey. Who am I to reject these blessings? I naturally forgot about beets chips and moved on to more pressing matters. I used this recipe and had to supplement it with some unsweetened applesauce because my beets only yielded about a cup of puree. I made a dozen cupcakes for me and my beaux, being careful to not make them too big. Now we both get one in our lunch for the rest of the week! I feel like Glinda the Good Witch. Now, how can I turn avocados, the most evil vegetable of them all, into a Twinkie?
