“Laying Down Those Funky Beets”: Beet Salad with Horseradish

Beet Salad ~AStackofDishes.com“Sometimes when I’m in a restaurant, I’ll order a beet salad just so that when the waiter serves them to me I can say:  Thanks man for laying down those funky beets! …………………….and I don’t even like beets…”

One of the best parts of this past Mother’s Day was to simply just kick back and hang out with my kids. When they were younger I used to refer to them as The Flying Wallendas. This was on account of their non stop acrobatics and general all around goofiness. They bickered and whined about each other during those young years {and occasionally still do}, but the truth is they are a pretty tight bunch. All these years later it warms the cockles of my heart to see the love they have for each other.

They’ve always been a gaggle of comedians. Honestly, the whole family is really. For instance, my Mother just started a blog about her quilting {she’s a legend it these parts and now teaches}. Her tag line is “I’m gonna keep you in stitches!” OK, OK, so I’m the one who bestowed this line upon her- but after a few minutes of knowing her, you would agree that this tag line suits her perfectly.

It was Saturday night, as we lay strewn about on my Mother’s couches watching comedy TV, when a comedian delivered the above joke. Olivia thought it hilarious (me too)- and so here you go my dears- I’m laying upon you my funky beets!
