I promised to put up some more beet recipes. One of our favorite salads is a salad I found on the web many years ago — I'm a bit surprised that only three persons have rated it as it has been there since 2003. On the other hand I haven't done it either in spite of the fact that we make it quite often. Here it is, Creamy Beet Salad.
Another simple salad is made with pickled beets, lentils and apples — for the dressing you can use sour cream, yoghurt or crème fraiche with some mustard and black pepper.
Life keeps running faster than I do and it also have a way of telling me what to do instead of the other way round. Heavy snowfall was predicted so I thought I better go shopping on Sunday in case our driveway would turn into a toboggan-run. So I wrapped up and left the domestic hearth only to find that the car refused to start. Not much to do about on a Sunday but Monday morning I phoned for help. Two young nice guys came — and I was almost happy that they couldn't start the car either. It would have been cheaper but I would have felt stupid — like I always do when the computer act up and I bring it to town where it behaves perfectly. Just like kids when they are away from home. Anyway, they had to bring the car to the garage, where they cured it. This morning the driveway looked like a toboggan-run but I managed to get both down and back up without any problems. Now I don't need to shop until the end of next week so I can relax and do everything I have intended to do for some years. Or I might read and have tea...
