My thanks too, for posting your recipe.

Mrs. M. is an avid beet fan and I'll be sure to try it when my fall beets are ready to harvest.

She has a very old family recipe for Polish Beet Soup that I make several times a year. I have to quadruple the recipe because her family shows up with empty Tupperware containers, once the word is out I've made a batch.

I'll post it here if anyone would like it. It's customary to serve it with marble rye bread and mashed potatoes, but not mandatory.

One last word of farewell, Dear Master and Mistress.

Whenever you visit my grave,

say to yourselves with regret

but also with happiness in your hearts

at the remembrance of my long happy life with you:

"Here lies one who loved us and whom we loved."

No matter how deep my sleep I shall hear you,

and not all the power of death

can keep my spirit

from wagging a grateful tail.
