Maple Glazed Carrots

I don’t think using prepared foods is a good thing, but may blessings rain down on the person who decided that people probably want to buy pre-peeled and pre-cut carrots in a bag!!

To make this dish add 1/2 tbsp. of margarine, 1/4 cup of water and 2 tbsp. of maple syrup into your skillet.

Bring this to a boil and add 2 cups of matchstick carrots.

Cover your skillet and simmer the carrots for 6 minutes. Stir and continue simmering (uncovered) for anywhere between 5-8 minutes, depending on how crunchy you like your carrots.

A word of warning: As your home fills with the sweet smell of maple syrup, your children will probably think they are having pancakes for dinner. You may want to forewarn them.

Who ate it?

Husband- He liked it but thought I made too little. So, if you have good eaters at your house, be sure to double the recipe.

Son #1- He ate them!

Son #2- I thought he was eating them, but really the sneaky dude was just licking the maple syrup off the carrots.

In other news:

You might be in your late 30s. You might be happily married. You might be dragging your lead-footed children to school. You might even smell of glazed carrots, but you should still probably put on a little mascara, because you never know when you’re going to walk right into Jake Gyllenhaal!

Or maybe it was his stunt double, or maybe his driving double. Well, at the very least, it was his look-a-like cousin.

– Mom (with no mascara) on a veggie mission.
