I was shopping at HEB today on my lunch break and I bought a jar of pickled beets. I really don't know why, since I have never really liked beets (they taste like dirt), but I had an undeniable urge to eat pickled ones. Since they only cost $1.40, I figured it was worth the splurge.
So I ate several pickled beets when I got home from work. They still taste like dirt, but somehow I don't mind that anymore. I actually kind of like it. I think I am officially a beet fan!
And click here to watch the credits of the Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland movie that my sisters and I watched 100000000 times as kids. Give it until about 3:15 and you can hear exactly what I hear in my head every time someone says pickled beets.
