We go through a lot of carrots in this house. We have them with lunch. We snack on them with hummus. We put them in stir fry meals… So many possibilities.
I recently picked the last of our carrot crop from the garden. We planted orange, yellow and purple carrots. Lots of color is helpful when trying to get your children to eat their veggies! This is perfect for children who resist vegetables, so much color and good fresh flavor. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

I don’t really remember what distracted me yesterday. I think I had too many messages to go through and I was baking and taking photos as well. I didn’t get good photos so I have to repeat the photo shoot today…I love thyme. It’s the only herb I have growing in a pot outside my house. It’s always such a pleasure to pick a few sprigs, smell them and use them for cooking, like the last time I made some mushroom soup. I love carrots too, I think I eat them at least 5-6 times a week! Omg you grew purple and yellow carrots, that’s so cool! I can’t remember when i last ate yellow or purple carrots. I do more sautéing, however roasting is a great idea too. I must try and roast them using this recipe one of these fine evenings. Thank you for sharing. Have a lovely day and evening. Thanks for your friendship!
I know how hectic it can get! Good luck with the second photo shoot. We do so love carrots, and the boys certainly enjoy the different colored ones. Frankly I like the colors too! Enjoy the rest of the week.
I love colourful food too. The photo shoot went on well but I took so much time trying to get it right. I got a few nice photos and I hope to post this cake today or tomorrow. Thanks and have a lovely evening. I know you’re about 4 hours ahead of me!
Love roasted carrots, and with thyme too 🙂 Have a great recipe for Honey Thyme Carrots, I need to post that some day! 🙂
Every now and then I add honey too. Thanks for stopping by.
We also go through a lot of carrots. My favorite preparation of them is roasted, with an herb and burst of citrus, like this delicious recipe. Your carrots would pair so well with lamb… 🙂
Hmmm, lamb and carrots, I’m getting hungry!
