Garden Beets and Nuggets of Wisdom

I just found this very insightful nugget:

The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day.

From a fantastic article in the WSJ.

Guess what these are?

They are steamed beets from my dad’s garden. Tender, sweet, and fresh. The best kind of beets, I think. I’ve never had better. I like eating them plain or topped with yogurt, or in a sandwich. I’ll post the sandwich later.

What’s your favorite way to eat beets? What’s your favorite quote or nugget of wisdom?

  1. Once I roasted them in the oven with a balsalmic glaze and put on a salad

    I think I died and went to foodie heaven!

    I like to juice them mostly.

    I loved that nugget. What a great one!

  2. I can only handle beets in small doses. Not too much! Have you ever tried a Guatemalan enchilada? It’s not the Mexican kind, but a tostada with a beet/cabbage salad on top. So good.
