This may not be one of the dishes that Mama served for Sunday dinners at our house, but I’ve grown to like them over the years.

If you grow your own carrots, or buy some from a local farmers market, this is a great way to serve them with about any meal. The slight sweetness of the brown sugar and unique tastes of carrots just seem to go well together.

I like to use the baby carrots you buy in the grocery store. They’re already peeled, fairly uniform in size, and they cook up nice and tender – despite the fact that they aren’t really baby carrots at all. Go figure.

The taste of glazed carrots reminds me of candied yams, another one of my favorites.

    I never was the remote-I had friends who were- Most of the time I had the tv to myself-My Grandfather had ‘his’ tv in the kitchen and we had ours in the living room. Generally speaking if my Grandfather was up past 7pm it was either a Holiday, or someone had died. I do remember our first color set-I was in grade school, my Grandparents had it delivered as a ‘Surprise’-I walked in, there it was all 13″ of glorious color-on its own stand and no remote…Don’t want to spoil me… But what I really recall was how the tv went off air every night at a certain time and if you were up for that you well, you just were not supposed to be up that late-what’s a matter with you anyway? I was just thinking the other day about ‘Specials’ and those once a year tv events-really something Everyone looked forward to. Now that everything is instant-we’ve lost the nostalgia of having something to ‘look forward to’. Thanks for your blog. Hope all is well in your world today. WE have 40’s and tonight supposed to be only 29?? Yesterday was 60? My daughter was trying to clean out her closet and we literally cant right now cause all 4 seasons seem to come into play in one 24 hour period! I saw a cartoon that said-“I live in Iowa-We don’t Have Seasons”. Was supposed to be funny?…

    I love glazed carrots one of my favorite veggies. I use light brown sugar and a touch of Kings Syrup. I too was the family remote,we never had colored TV until the mid 80’s after I was out of high school. But I would proudly be the remote again if we could go back to those days.
    Praying that your legs soon heal and you are feeling better. Have a great week.
