That is quite a mess.
Fortunately it was not due to me losing a finger.
It is the mess I made peeling beets. Yes beets.
I wanted roasted beets for salad, and it was rather tasty.
Roasted beets, goat cheese and walnuts over mixed greens with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the top. Tasty tasty stuff. I highly recommend it.
One lesson we learned about roasting beets, at 400 degrees they need at least 40 minutes, 30 left us with the larger beets being a bit too crunchy in the salad.
