Just Beet It!

Remember my canned beets?  Blog Post #9 describes where I got this recipe and how to make it.  I opened a jar a few days ago because I thought it was about time I did something with them.  I'm giving one jar away to Grandma Irma, she's curious.  And that leaves me with just two jars.  These. Are. Awesome.  I believe that with this recipe, I have cured most of my issues with mixing sweet and savory.  Oh, wow, these are good!  Since I only have two jars, I didn't want to make another soup (although all I would've had to do is puree the two jars and heat it up, instant, fantastic soup!) because it would've used them all up, I wanted to try a few different things.  The first thing I did was just eat a couple slices.  Yum.  The second thing I did was mash a bunch up with a boiled egg (I got home late and was starving).  It tasted amazing but looked extremely unappetizing.  Hot pink eggs?  Very weird.  The third thing I did was this:

I sliced a boiled egg...laid it out on a plate in a line, then placed beet slices on top and sprinkled with Feta cheese.  Absolutely delicious.  (I boil a dozen eggs at a time so when I come home and I'm really hungry and I don't want to eat something really horrible for me I eat a boiled egg).  I read that potato salad with beets is delicious.  I bet it is.  But hot pink potato salad is just too strange to eat, so...this is the next best thing!  Enjoy!  xo, AB
