I'm sitting in the cube, working on some documentation, and eating glazed carrots from the cafeteria. The carrots have a little too much crunch and are a mite lacking in flavoring. The pieces are cut unevenly, so that some are tiny and soft, whereas others are huge and chewy.

Nevertheless, I am grateful for the carrots. I missed my midmorning snack, and my stomach began making loud embarrassing gurgling noises. I went to the cafeteria to see if I could find something to shut it up; besides, I needed a vegetable side for my lunch. (Rice and [livejournal.com profile] neonnova's awesome chili does not a complete meal make.) Sure, I could have had a granola bar, but why eat dry, oversweet granola when carrots can be had?

The tragedy is that there are actually carrots in the refrigerator at home, and I already know how to make the best glazed carrots in the whole universe. I just haven't had the time. It's sad because these cafeteria carrots pale in comparison. Eating them makes me long for the Carrots that Should Have Been.

If there's time after I get home from rehearsal tonight, I fully intend to make a stock of glazed carrots. They reheat easily and well. I don't intend to be caught carrotless again.

I had to do an image search for glazed carrots because I had no idea what you were talking about. :) They look tasty!

Yep, they're fantastic! They turn soft and sweet and almost honeyed. Mmm, carrots.

You've never had glazed carrots? What's wrong with you?! Perhaps they were "imaginary" carrots ...

Maybe I had them and didn't know what they were called?

imaginary carrots: more complex, less filling!

Looking at the recipe, those sound very yummy. I wonder if I could get P to eat them?

It's worth a shot. And if he balks, then well, more carrots for you!
