A Beet Story
My younger daughter committed a no-no, picking garden produce without permission.
Her consequence: she had to eat what she picked (kind of like you have to eat what you kill).
I showed her how to prep and roast the beets.
She was to eat one before every lunch and supper until they were gone, which she did.
(Except for a few that the rest of us filched.)

Now Dobby’s in on it, too.
A Bûche de Noël: easier to make than pronounce.
Sour Patch Kids: exquisitely wrapped.
My favorite: sold.
This same time, years previous: the time I sat on a dead mouse, roasted carrot and beet salad with avocado, splash, soft and chewy breadsticks, vanilla buttercream frosting, roasted cherry vanilla ice cream with dark chocolate, peas with prosciutto, tangential thoughts, and zucchini relish.
