Happy Friday my friends! It’s spring! And I officially held the evidence in my hand and then stuffed them all in my shopping cart before anyone else could buy them.
Guys, I am ridiculous. There I was in the middle of the veggie aisle at Smiths Marketplace shopping for ingredients for some upcoming recipes when I let out an audible squeal of delight as if I’d just been presented the keys to a new car won in a contest. Seriously. People stopped and looked to see what I was so excited about.
There they were in all their glory. CANDY CANE STRIPED BEETS! I know. I’m insane. But I NEVER see them in the store and always have to wait for the farmers market to roll around, and even then it’s a crapshoot. I promise myself I’ll plant them every year, and then I don’t, (I’m ordering some today!) so to see them in the store left me feeling all giddy.
