procrastination and a beet salad

Unit 2 for my World Religion summer class is due on Wednesday by 9am. Since I love to procrastinate, I decided I would put off reading Chapters 4-7 (pgs 154 thru 316) until the weekend before. I admit this is not a smart idea and yet I did the same thing for the first unit. Maybe I will learn, one day. Well I spent Sunday outside getting sun, drinking some beer, and reading.

I got 6 out of 9 discussion responses submitted to the discussion boards last night so that left the remaining 3 for Monday and Tuesday night. Not bad, not bad. So I moved along with my plans for a haircut and to run over to Shaws to get some food for the week… lots of bunny veggies, stuff for gazpacho, and enough chocolate for cupcakes that I will be making later this week.

So all this lead to tonight’s running around and a great dinner. Price (yay! he got back Sunday afternoon!) and I had some pulled BBQ chicken, had some mac and cheese I made on Sunday night, corn on the grill, and beet salad! I got a bunch of beets at the Government Center Farmer’s Market (Mon & Wed) for $2.30! I admit that I had never had a beet before, or at least don’t remember it.

Well, the beets were really good and really easy to prepare. Boil them for a long time, drain, cool, rub skin off, slice. Simple. I used my mandolin for even slices. I threw them into a salad with some red leaf lettuce, red onion, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar. Sadly, I forgot to take a picture….too distracted with getting everything ready and anticipation for another Big Love episode. Can’t get enough of that show.
