I'm guesting today over at Sue's (Praise and Coffee), talking about the glitz and glamor of a new kitchen, and when the newness wears off.
" ... then life became ... reality. The kitchen, that once was sparkling new, didn't seem that new any more. The glitter of it all started to fade as I still had to do dishes, my stacks of "stuff" piled up on the counters, the kids made huge messes, the cupboards needed wiping down, my busy life left it looking not so pretty anymore.
Read the rest of the story, here."
On Sunday, when we harvested tomatoes and potatoes, how could I forget these?
My favorite - beets.
Made into a beautiful salad for dinner that night. Okay, I'll admit it. It takes maturity for a kid to like beets. My kids weren't too thrilled, as they picked through the salad and pulled out most of the beets. How could they?
And then parsnips.
Yes, they smell like dirt and the ground.
But they are delicious, and my husband and I love them! He is Irish, but I've learned to really appreciate them (that is a kind word.)
I used parsnips in dinner last night, only to find when my daughter got home from soccer, these were on the cutting board.
Again, she picked these out of the soup.
Does your family eat parsnips and beets?
Or what do they pick out?
