Quick - grab the carrots!

Dudes - another busy day, but I thought I'd take the time to offer up this recipe for yummy nummy deeeeligh carrot salad, that even I, a hater of all things cooked carrot, enjoyed.

Srsly, it's that good.

You'll need:

1 Tbsp oil
1.5 cups carrots (I julienned mine, just for fun)
1/4 cup each chopped onion and green pepper
1/4 cup rasins
1/2 ounce chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
1.5 tsp sugar
1.5 tsp apple cider vinegar

Cook the carrots, onions, and green pepper in the oil until crisp-tender, cover the pot, reduce heat to low, and cook until fork tender.

Add the other ingredients, toss, and chill for an hour or so.


This goes really well with roasted orange chicken (take one chicken, jam orange slices under the skin, stuff a half an orange in the body cavity along with a cupla bay leaves, sprinkle chicken with salt, roast at 375 for an hour or until done) and buttered rice.

I am just saying, is all.


Hey - you know how to totally use up a Sunday?

Step 1) Decide to paint your bedroom. Step 2) Decide to use three different colors. Step 3) Decide to replace some window trim while you're at it, Step 4) go ahead and move everything in the room OUT while painting, just so that once done you can rearrange the furniture into something resembling an adult's room and not something done in "early dormitory" style, Step 5) go to the store, purchase paint and other supplies, and Step 5) commence to painting.

That should take about 10 hours, at the end of which time you'll be really tired, and once you've had your dinner and some cocktails you will sleep like a baby, only without the 2 a.m. feeding and diaper change (unless, of course, you're into that sort of thing, then by all means have at it).

Really! It works like a charm!


Bye for now. Y'all enjoy your Monday as much as you can, y'hear?
