Pickled Beets?

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.

Chomp. Chomp. Chomp. I made a batch of beet hummus this weekend. It's great, but my fingers are stained pink after eating it on sandwiches all week.

lol! I have the exact same rap in my head every time I see, read, or hear someone talk about pickled beets. I remember watching that movie as a kid and bursting into laughter every time I heard Braveheart say "Pickled Beets!!???" at the end.
