Day 3 - Getting Ready for Thanksgiving 2014 - Let's talk sides


Let's talk lite and easy side dishes - 

Every year our family tries to "feast in moderation." While we are sure that this is highly unlikely in most households, we can't help but try and try again. If comfort foods are what you look for on your Thanksgiving table, as most people do, we definitely plan to share some of our comfort food recipes. But not everything on the Thanksgiving table has to be heavy and loaded with starch.

This particular side compliments the Herbed Turkey recipe from yesterday. The color brightens the table and provides the earthy herb aroma and a sweet glazing. And, this side can be made last as it only takes about 20 - 30 minutes.

Honey Glazed Carrots




Ingredients:

2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
1 (16 ounce) bag of Baby Carrots
2 Tbsp Honey
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
2 Tsp. Fresh Dill
2 Tsp. Fresh Thyme leaves

Melt butter in a large saute pan over medium - low heat. Add brown sugar and honey and heat until the ingredients are melted and form a thin glaze like texture. Add carrots and coat well with the glaze mixture. Simmer until carrots are tender - about 20 - 30 minutes. Add fresh herbs and toss.

We recommend our Steamed Carrot Cake pudding with Brandy Butter for dessert!
