Beets Me

Today was a loooong day of work. I woke up at 6:30am, was working by 6:40 and didn’t stop working until after 7pm. I’m beet…err beat.

When I realized it was 12:15 I also realized I had an hour long meeting starting in 15 minutes and knew I better feed myself fast.

Working from home allowed me to run to the fridge and grab supplies for a big, hearty salad.


Beets Me Salad

Serves 1


  • 2 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 1 roasted beet, chopped
  • 1/3 cup garbanzo beans
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • drizzle agave nectar
  • sprinkle of salt
  • sprinkle of pepper

In a large salad bowl add lettuce, spinach, beets, beans and cheese. Drizzle olive oil, agave nectar, salt and pepper over top and serve.


I quickly scarfed down this salad so that I wouldn’t have a mouthful come 12:30 when I was scheduled to lead a call. At 12:45 I was informed we needed to reschedule. Not what I had wanted to hear.

Me and my schedule for the day were thrown off course. When was I to get my emissions test and tag renewed that I had planned for an afternoon outing? Beets me! Let’s just hope I can keep my expired tag under wraps until I find time to change my address and transfer my tag to the new county I’m living in.

I’m thinking I’ll be making this salad again for lunch tomorrow. The agave nectar coupled with salty feta is unbelievably good. I have more roasted beets and more feta in the fridge, just waiting to be served again.

How do you handle a schedule change?

Do you like beets??

    Ok, I hate beets. That will never change, no matter how juicy and pretty they look. But, I was able to get both the address on my licence changed and my tag renewed all in the same day recently. This is even with showing up to the Lithonia Dept. of Driver Services after noon and having to wait for over 2 hours to be seen. I headed straight to the tag office on Dresden after that and was in and out in less than 10 minutes. It can be done!

    Be careful. I know several people who have gotten tickets even though the month was still correct. I guess a police officer was behind them and ran the tag?

    I transfered mine from Fulton to Dekalb before, but I can’t remember what was involved.

    YUM! Hubby is gone next week so I think I will be treating myself to this deliciousness!

    Good luck with the car! I hate that stuff, I always look for ways to have Hank do all the stuff – but sometimes I have to put my big girl panties on and deal with it. Not fun.
