Favorite Food Fridays-Dijon Glazed Carrots

Thanksgiving is almost here! It is my favorite holiday of the whole year (even more than Christmas, although I would never admit that to the kids who are already dying for Christmas!).

This recipe is bound to make it onto any holiday menu around our home. The kids love it, and putting it on the table almost always bring cheers. What is it about hearing your child cheer about vegetables that is so satisfying?

Anyhow, on to the recipe.

Dijon Glazed Carrots

16 oz. bag of baby carrots
1/2 c. water
3 T. butter
2 tsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. salt

In a saucepan, bring carrots and water to a boil. Cook 10-12 minutes, or until carrots are crisp-tender. Drain and set aside. Place rest of ingredients in saucepan and cook until sugar is dissolved. Pour over hot carrots and toss to coat.

Yum! Actually, the boys and I were talking about Thanksgiving food earlier this week, and we decided to have it tonight, too. So, I'd better go get busy. We're having turkey breast, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, dijon carrots, green beans, and pumpkin pie.
