So sorry...I didn't mean to burp like that. But I just polished off a pint of Haney preserved beets, and they were scrumptious. I remember back in the day, when I got my fresh beets from a farmer named Pearly Tooker, up in Gansevoort, NY. I believe I bought those beets for $5/bushel. I would put them up as quickly as I could, and go back for more. That was back in the day when I had to count the servings per jar, and the folks in the family who would eat them, the number of times/week I could reasonably serve beets, and prepare enough for the year at mere pennies per jar. Ah...the good old days.
Well, anyway, so now we're well-to-do, and we can eat an entire jar of pickled beets for a snack if we darned well please. Life is so very good. And it is a delight to plan tomorrow's evening meal - chicken fried steak. Yummy! Not gluten free, and I don't even care. The cube steaks are already defrosting:
I'm going to try and post a shot of the freshly prepared chicken fried steak tomorrow pm. We are going to visit family in Poughkeepsie early in the day. If I have time to post after we feed the troops tomorrow evening, I shall post a picture. Otherwise, we'll be heading out to hear the Dyer Switch Band at LT's Grill tomorrow night. I hope to see many of you there!!!
In the meantime...we leave you with this:
