I don’t like to cook.  With Arlo at school in the mornings however, I now feel obligated to do even more in the kitchen.  (Why don’t I feel obligated to watch more t.v.?  Discuss.)  One thing I’m forever trying is to get more — any — vegetables into that child.  This pin looked so easy and the oh! the possibilities:

My first attempt, first carrot:

Went horizontal instead of vertical so they would fit in his lunchbox. Fail.

Second attempt, second carrot:

Forgot the timer. Arlo home. Fail.

Third attempt, third carrot:

Flaccid. Fail.

Food wasted:  carrots (3), olive oil, salt
Items washed:  mandolin, blade, bowl, knife, silpat, cooking sheet, countertops
Time wasted:  $*^@#$%**!@#$%$#%

How many more vegetables must be slain in the name of cooking?  Won’t someone please think of the vegetables?

Sorry zucchini.  You’ll probably be next.

  1. Try it with sweet potatoes too. I do this all the time. Cut them up, skins on, like steak fries but not too thick. Olive oil, sea salt, pepper, basil…roast/bake for around 12-15 minutes, flipping them over once. Delish!!
