Beetroot and Ham Sandwich
Hello, remember me? I kept threatening to write another blog and every time I tried, the Gremlins struck. The last time was some technical shizz about a server problem and overloading with something that was designed to stop it overloading! I know, way beyond my comprehension.
Anyway, or any road up as they say where I come from, I’ve had a very good summer and I hope all of you have had one too. One of the highlights of my year and I know this must seem silly, is the re-discovery of Beetroot. I’m not sure what happened, but I was nosing in my refrigerator the one day and noticed the jar stuck in the corner. It was as if it was calling to me, “Want me, want me, want me….” I was instantly hooked, my taste buds were like a pneumatic road drill, vibrating and jiving to the rhythm of the Beet excuse the pun.
So it was, I had to have a sandwich, there and then. A couple of slices of fresh ham, two pieces of lightly buttered bread and the wonderful Beetroot to finish off. This is heaven, it really is. I don’t know where my love for this vegetable came from, but I’m probably thinking of childhood summers. Maybe I just love the taste of it?
I’m not a big eater of sandwiches, come to think of it, I’m not a really big eater. As I’ve got older I’ve learned to eat sensibly, the 5 fruit and veg a day as my Doctor will say. I’m having trouble at the moment finding really good Oranges, but that might be a seasonal thing. In the meantime, I’m so happy to have re-discovered my true first love, Beetroot. Long live the Beetroot, oh and it’s so good to be back.
