I was thrilled to find carrots in our CSA this week, I was looking forward to eating a vegetable that wasn’t green!
I steamed the carrots then tossed them with a little butter and brown sugar. I picked up some bone in pork chops from the local grocery store and we had a nice big tossed salad to round out the meal. The hubby is a huge fan of cooked carrots, I don’t think he even realized we didn’t have a starch with dinner.
The salad consisted of red leaf lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and carrots from our CSA. I added some sliced pepperoncini and some blue cheese crumbles to my salad. The hubby likes his to be a bit more boring, he just had the greens and some croutons with a ton of ranch dressing. I didn’t even use dressing, the vinegar from the pepperoncini and the creaminess of the blue cheese crumbles was all the flavor I needed. It was a really light dinner, perfect for a hot and steamy mid summer evening!
