The Magic of Roasting a veggie

Here is the recipe that I mentioned on Tuesday, in my blog post cider dijon pork chops. And as some of you already know this dish did not make it to the table for Monday night’s supper. Lol, because I the silly food blogger forgot to not only write down the main ingredient (One bunch of carrots) on the shopping list, but I too completely forgot to purchase it. Ha, I even was mentally thinking to myself “Ok Courtney don’t forget to grab the carrots.” And I still neglected to get them. Oh well 🙂 I still managed to cook this dish after purchasing one bunch of carrots. Haha! 

This garlic parmesan roasted carrots is seriously the easiest and most delicious side dish ever! Here’s the magical part: the carrots are baked in garlic, butter, and Parmesan cheese. Yum, yum! 😀

Garlic Parmesan Roasted Carrots Recipe

12 oz carrots, skin peeled
2 Tbsp salted butter, melted

Next, remove from heat and coat the carrots well with the garlic butter mixture. Arrange the carrots on the previously prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil.

 Garlic Butter Honey Roasted Carrots 

Oh, my goodness sakes alive lol, I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is right around the corner. It’s ridiculously insane on how fast this year has gone.

Who’s looking forward to Turkey day? Lol, I know I am. It is also one of my favorite holidays. I know I’ve shared this with you before, but one of my favorite traditions is when my family and I take a week long vacation to Hot Springs, Arkansas. While I am there, I will be making my most-liked chili recipe called Cowboy Chili, bake Libby’s pumpkin pie, roast pecans and much more. I am super duper excited! 😀

Lol, so here’s how goofy I am 😀 I was intending on cooking this garlic-butter Honey Roasted Carrots recipe last week to go along with the Tex-Mex Chili Mac that I too made on the same night but then a little birdie knocked some thought into my brain and said “Courtney are you crazy? Chili mac and carrots don’t go well together”. Therefore I completely changed my mind and decided not to have a side dish that evening. Lol, to make this a short story I chose to prepare this dish yesterday as a late afternoon snack, and I too wanted to try it. They were not only delicious, but the garlicky-buttery and honey glaze gave the carrots a real nice sweet taste as well.

What are some of your favorite holiday traditions?
