I haven't posted a recipe since before the holidays, so it's time to get started again.  Here's a nice, simple recipe for carrots, which have suddenly become my favourite vegetable (it's a long story).

I also take recipe requests.  :-)

 

Glazed Carrots

(Terence and Caroline Conran -- The Cook Book)

  • 1 1/2 lb. (700 g) young carrots
  • Salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 stick (55 g) butter

Scrape the carrots or peel thinly with a potato peeler and cook in boiling salted water until just tender.  Drain off all but about 2 tablespoons of the cooking water.  Add the sugar and let it dissolve over a gentle heat.  Add the butter and let the sugar and butter mixture cook faster until it starts to brown, rolling the carrots and shaking them until they are nicely coated.  They will be sweet and succulent and have a good flavour.

Serves 6

Silvio hears his public calling him, and prepares to enter the fray
Hey, want to make me some Silvio icons? I think he needs to join WA even if he doesn't win the April election. And that quote is a natural for his WA application. Poor Domi! Someone with an even larger ego than his own.

Why do I envision Silvio receiving stigmata? o_O (Icons on their way...)

Got them! Thank you (I think). Guess which one will not be chosen as the default icon. (I can't believe you actually found something like that; I probably don't want to know where, do I?)

I can't believe I found something like that! All I did was a Google search on Berlusconi! :-S And we thought Dominique had admirers!

Maybe Silvio will save that icon for his private communications with Dominique ....

I'm at skip = 80 on my flist. Am I going to find a poem, or did any hope of that go out the window when the fighting started up again?

Well, tell, did you pick the right Kremlin driveway yesterday?

I didn't get to the driveway, *sigh*, but I saw Putin's motorcade today! o_O

No poems necessary, LJ provided the perfect e-solution... (and I thought that perhaps I should in some form contribute at LEAST $2.99 to LJ... :-S)
