In her wonderful I Hate To Cook Book, Peg Bracken gives a recipe for Beetniks:

Should you happen to fish the final sweet pickle out of the juice in a pickle jar and, at the same instant, notice a can of baby beets on the pantry shelf (admittedly an unlikely chain of events), you can put the beets into the pickle juice, put the lid back on, and the next morning they will be pickled.

This is a pretty fair description of how I write most of my blog posts - and explains why I’m having such a tough time with the next entry in my Death Panels series: too many pickle jars, too many cans of baby beets.
