Here it is – a countdown til spring. From now until the first day of spring, I will post ways to make the dreary days of midwinter a little more merry.

If you know me well, you know how ironic it is that my sister is looking to me to introduce her to the world of beets. She, like me, made up her mind sometime ago that she doesn’t like beets and is now realizing that she doesn’t know if she really hates them or just decided she wouldn’t like them from one bad beet experience. She mentioned wanting to try them and I jumped at the opportunity. I squealed, “I’ll make us beets for dinner!” We had a sister date night last night and it was a beet bonanza! I made beet hummus and roasted beet and orange salad with salmon! And of course, there was cake!

Day 28: Be a Garden Show Goer.
Day 29: Drink more hot chocolate.
