Have you tried Pickled beets? I love them that way but I don't like them "warm" I might try this recipe though.

Shelly

I have had a few people tell me to try pickled beets...I may give that a go!

MMM

I can't bring myself to try asparagus! I'm such a WIMP when it comes to trying new foods. I love LOTS of different kinds of foods, but at 30, if I haven't already tried it, it's very hard to get me to!

Shelly

haha ohhhh I love asparagus, it may just be my favorite veg...but I can see how some people can't stand the smell...not to mention some people claim it makes their pee stink! hahaha, I've never noticed that myself.

MMM

I've heard that too! Well....my grandparents make it a lot, so I keep telling myself that the next time I'm there, and they make it, I will try it. IDK! We'll have to wait and see!

Beets are not tasty, in my opinion. But I have had them roasted in garlic and olive oil, which makes them more tolerable. Plus, the beet chips are pretty good with enough dip.

Aunt Kittie

Okay, the beet thing, give it up. There is no way to make them good - none, nada...
Asparagus on the other hand, ummm. For the scardycat, use a can of asparagus spears, drain well, put into a shallow bowl and cover with italian dressing. Let the spears soak in the dressing for a few hours and eat cold. It's even better if you place the marinaded spears over a scoop of cottage cheese and top lightly with fresh grated parmasean cheese. It'll change your out look on the vegetable completely.

Shelly

Glad to know it's not just me! I do however have a fear of canned asparagus. The color is not very appealing...but I'm weird about my veggies...I like everything just blanched and still crunchy. But what do I know...trust Aunt Kittie she went to culinary school! I think I will try the pickled beets...the thing is, they are so pretty. They scream EAT ME! haha

Also, I think mom hates beets too. Did grandma force feed you guys beets or something?

Sindy

Oh asparagus SO DOES make you Pee stink!

MMM

Alright, I might Aunt Kittie's recipe. Sounds good. Um, when I get brave enough, you know....

Becky

I cooked cabbage the way my mom suggested on New Year's Day and will need to try it 11 more times or else stick with cole slaw or Chinese food.

Shelly

haha...I prefer to get my cabbage in egg roles! ;)

Beets taste like dirt. Maybe if they're pickled, they taste like pickled dirt.

In about the third grade my sister memorized the poem "I'd Never eat a Beet" by Shel Silverstein and can still recite it (she is almost 25) and feels the need to do so anytime someone tells her that she must really try this "insert recipe of any form that includes beets" because she'd like it. I have to agree with her!

All I remember is the first line, "I'd never eat a beet, for I could not stand the taste. . . " and that is enough for me.

Beets taste like dirt. Don't bother trying them eight more times, you'll just develop a taste for dirt, and who wants that? :)
