So, my walk didn’t last too long….I was hoping on walking longer but I met my husband on the road as he was driving home from work. I hadn’t talked to him all day long so I hopped in his truck! I did make it up this big hill though (it is bigger in life!). Unfortunately, I don’t have any paved road near my house. I really don’t like walking on dirt roads, so I haven’t been very motivated to do so.
For dinner I grabbed a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. I was very busy this afternoon and didn’t have time to cook a big meal. I did experiment with some canned carrots. These cans have been staring at me for about two months from my pantry. A friend gave them to me and I finally decided that tonight was the night to use them!
These are the ingredients I decided to use:
I really like “Best Life Buttery Spread”. It healthier than most margarines/butter and it tastes really good to me. To cook the carrots I added about 3 tablespoons of the butter to a pan. I let this melt a bit and then threw the drained carrots in keeping the temperature on low. At first I was pretty skeptical! It seemed to be slightly watery so I was thinking that it was going to be too mushy. However, I decided to bump up the heat to medium and this did the trick! The carrots cooked and became more firm. I then put 3 pinches of organic sugar on them but I was not pleased with the taste. My final touch was to sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper and this made the carrots taste so much better! My husband ate them up but I thought they still had a slightly “canned” taste. But, overall not too shabby!
