I Swear.

I love swearing. Really it's one of my favorite things to do. It may not be my most productive hobby but I enjoy it quite regularly. It makes me sound unintelligent, unlady like, and crude. So some may say it's not really working for me. Maybe as a mother of three I should be aiming for a persona more in tune with my current role in life. But this is the thing, I love that swearing is inappropriate, vulgar and crass. To me, those are the positives.

This has really been a lifelong pursuit. When I was a teenager my ex step father (ya you read right) use to say I sounded like a truck driver's girlfriend. Now maybe he meant I wasn't swearing enough since I didn't qualify as a truck driver but simply the girlfriend. Perhaps I should of been swearing more at the time. Maybe that would of launched me into a whole new career.

I'm sad to say that since kids I've toned it down a bit. With kids present I am apt to say "oh darners" and "darn it all to heck". I'm embarrassed to say I've even uttered a "frig" here and there. But don't worry, there is still a whole lot of swearing in me waiting to burst out. As soon as those kiddies go to bed you'll get an ear full.

Marinated Beets

6 beets, peeled and cubed
2 cloves of garlic, peeled
1 part red wine vinegar
1 part water

Boil beets until tender, about 12-15 minutes. Remove beets from water and place in a container with a lid. Put garlic in container and partially cover beets with water from pot. Cover completely with red wine vinegar. I try to aim for a solution of half water and half vinegar. Place lid on container and refrigerate. Beets will be ready to eat within 24 hours, and can be kept in fridge for 2-3 weeks.
