Say, can one ever eat too many carrots, you think?

It’s crazy the amount of carrots I’ve been eating lately… And I do mean crazy.

There was this one day last week-end when I probably ate close to 2 pounds.

TWO POUNDS PEOPLE!

To my defense, I’d been making carrot cake that day and shredded way too many carrots, so I ended up making some version of theย The Best Carrot Salad Everย with the extra.

But I didn’t turn orange or anything, so I guess I must be fine…

Now, with that in mind, I guess it will come as no surprise to you that Missuz Carrot would be the one and only star of today’s recipe.

Well… that’s IF we can call that a recipe. To be fair, this is pretty much an almost-non-recipe-recipe!

But food doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious, you know.

Seriously, this is sooooo easy, I think a 3 year old could do it.

And can you say pretty?

Oh my, so pretty!

I think I could eat the whole bowlful to myself. Hey, that’s only about 2 pounds worth anyway! ๐Ÿ˜‰

But seriously, this, along with theย Smokey Bacon Brussel Sprouts that I made not too long ago, is bound to become one of my favorite side dishes… One that will find its way to my table on a very regular basis, especially when carrots are in season and I can get my hands on beautiful local carrots that have been dug right out of the dirt mere hours before making it to my plate.

Oh, I can’t wait!
