Beet Red Blast
When there is a sale on beets, I go crazy! I still absolutely LOVE my juicer and keep it on my counter to make it even easier to use.
I'm crazy for beets. Just crazy. I absolutely love 'em and am secretly glad that Oliver will have no part of anything "beet".
Just the other day Oliver came prancing into the kitchen after I had finished up juicing a beet, cucumber, pear and ginger. "Mah-um!" he sang. "Will you...." and then his voice drifted off. Quietly he backed out of the kitchen. I hardly noticed.
I was focused on my photo shoot.
When I turned around, the child was gone. Disappeared. Vanished into thin air!
I found him hunkered down, masked in a blanket, shivering under the dining room table. “Were you afraid I was going to ask you to drink some juice?” (The rule in our home is we have to always try a taste.) He nods coyly, still hidden from sight.
Selfishly, I made an exception to our rule. After all, more for me! :)
