Are you guilty of trying to convince yourself to eat things you just don’t like because they’re good for you? I know I am…at least when it comes to beets. Check out my recipe for this peach, pluot and roasted vegetable salad for a beet recipe that even I enjoyed!
I also just want to take a moment to remember all the men, women and children who were lost on this day 11 years ago. And to say thank you to all the men and women who fight to protect us every day. We appreciate it.
I was merely blocks away from the World Trade Center when the towers hit, in a biology lab that I don’t remember. Then, on the fifth floor in homeroom, watching from a window as they seemed to crack at once and then fall. And then. I ran.
It feels like a lifetime ago. And then again, it feels like yesterday. But no matter how much time passes, what remains true is that I will never forget. I’ve written more about my firsthand experience with 9/11 in previous posts, so I’ll just direct you to them if you’re a new reader and want to hear more.
