Beets are Murder

Vegan's have it all wrong. Beef isn't murder any more than beets are. They're both equally ghastly. Don't believe me? Just look at this grisly scene of root vegetable carnage left when I made Borscht for dinner, tonight.

I'm just sorry the picture didn't show the beet blood all over my knife.

Yes, that's right. The Mormon Foodie is confessing to beet murder. My kitchen certainly looked like a crime scene. Better call in CSI: Utah.

I think the beets deserved it, but that's up to a jury to decide. My lawyer is trying to work out a plea deal - temporary insanity.

After all, I was seeing red.

My Grandparents were beet farmer before they move to Utah I can't quite handle them never liked the taste.

Hey Nett! I'm not a huge fan of them, either. Due to some strange family members and friends, they show up in my refrigerator from time to time. I just feel compelled to do something about it, other than throw them out. If it happened more often, I'd think they were zucchini.

I love beets, but they are a mess to work with. This last fall I spent a day pickling beets, they turned out great, but I will not be canning them again for at least 4 years, they are a mess!!! Oh, but soooo good!

I don't like it much because just what Brad.Lindsey.Lexi.Rowen said, it's a mess to work with it.
