Red Beets - Success!

I am not packing beets in Caroline's lunch tomorrow but I just had to write that she finally ate them! Well, she didn't exactly eat the beets but she ate the stems and that is close enough for me. I made braised beet greens tonight for dinner and while I was chopping up the stems, several pieces dropped on the floor. Caroline picked them up one by one and said "beet" and ate each piece. I put cooked stems on her plate for dinner and she happily ate them up. Success!
