You do "BEET" all!

This alien life form is the largest beet from our garden! It filled 3 jars when I was canning beets the other day. If you want to know more about canning beets - go to http://candaceskitchen.blogspot.com/2009/09/canning-beets.html .

It is actually my heart that Candace ripped out of my chest and canned. She is so dedicated to canning that even I am placed in food storage!

It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
