It’s been cloudy and rainy for the last two days. Anything below seventy degrees is not my cup of tea! Especially when I am outside running errands. Being home by the fireplace with a hot mug of latte or chocolate would have been way ideal!
Let’s get this straight, I don’t dislike many vegetables. The ones I hate can be counted on one hand. Carrot is the number one evil very close to cauliflower by the way!
I eat them anyway! Some every day!
You know how? By getting them with other vegetables that I like. I believe that’s the same trick some mothers apply to make their kids eat greens and other not so loved vegetables.
I find that carrot blends really well with pumpkin, ginger, and roasted garlic! Odd combination but good enough for me! I also use sweet potatoes, leeks, and squash.
