We had a wonderful time with old family friends last night. Mom seemed to enjoy herself and it was very nice catching up. They loved my Chicken Marsala but the big hit of the evening were Frank's Glazed Carrots. So I am going to have him share his recipe but unfortunately I did not take any pics to share.
1 small package of baby carrots
3 T. Brown Sugar
1 T. Butter
1 T. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Place all ingredients into a sauté pan. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat until most of the liquid has evaporated. Turn to low and simmer until carrots start to brown and are tender. Once the carrots start to brown watch carefully because they burn quickly. Total cook time is around 15 min.
This morning we have to go pick up our truck from the service station (I think we are single handedly keeping that place running) and then I am running up to the Church to grab the altar linens as it is my week to launder them. I also hope to make and can the Pear-Jalapeno Jelly that I did not get to yesterday.
For date night tonight we are going for probably the last motorcycle ride of the season with Dick and Jackie. We will grab dinner somewhere and enjoy great company. Hope you all have a wonderful evening with those you love.
