¡Que ricos los betaveles!

¡Que ricos los betaveles!
I am surprised at how many people don’t like beets.  I love them!  My sister’s family has a recipe for a jello beet salad that has become ‘my’ beet salad since I began to make it for Thanksgiving years ago.  I just don’t tell anyone the secret ingredient is pickle juice!  I am fortunate to live in a climate where many things grow; beets among them.  These two were ready to pick yesterday morning.  I couldn’t resist the urge to sketch and paint them before steaming them yesterday.  Today they are nice and cold and will make a wonderful beet salad with goat cheese and red onions.  Is it lunch yet?
