Please at least take the time to read the recipe. Don't say yuck, carrots, right away. Children actually love this if you don't tell them it's carrots, men as well.
This is really very good and makes a very colorful dish for any meal. It would be wonderful for the holidays.
Okay maybe I wouldn't have made it yesterday if my brother, Larry, had not brought me fresh carrots, plus a bushel of green beans and pounds of boiling onions. And I thought I was going to have a day off! Someone he was working with a the annual Lion's Club Bluegrass Fair had given him all this stuff. Being the true children of our father, if it's free we're taking it.
