Live Real. Eat Real.

Carrot Salad

Question:  How do you repair your house when it is officially bursting at the seams?

I can’t answer that – yet – but I can tell you that 8-handed Apples to Apples when half of the people playing are half in the bag is a hilarious experience.

I’m terribly busy this morning (I had to come into the office to be able to log on to my laptop – how’s that for a vacation?  LOL), but I do have time to give you the recipe for this simple, classic summer salad.  Because it’s what you make when you have 6 quarts of carrots from your CSA in the fridge.  (The remainder will be canned.  Soon.  I hope.)  Later this week, I’ll give you the method for the Perfect Smoked Beef Brisket.

If Beloved lets me – I think it may now be a family secret.

Have a lovely Monday, y’all.

Would you believe I happen to have all these ingredients? Except the homemade mayo, but it is organic and called “lemonnaise”. That’s okay, right?

I love apples to apples … and half in the bag is the ONLY way to play it! : )
