Why Do I Buy Carrots! ?

Ok, Honestly? I do know why I buy carrots. I buy them because I feel guilty.  I think to myself, I don't need chips, chocolate, PopTarts, whatever! If I'm hungry, I can just have a Carrot!
So I buy carrots and they lay in the refrigerator until they stop being orange. So I've decided this happens because I hate washing and peeling and the whole preparation thing. So, I buy Baby Carrots! They are kinda cute. Easier to wash up and bite size!....... Same thing happens!
So the other day I see these little packages of Carrot Chips! They even wavy like Ruffles Potato Chips! and on Sale! What could possibly be my excuse now!?
I open the refrigerator door and stare at them. I close the door, open it again and decide that I can do this!
I take out the little bag and Oh No! I must have the temperature turned up too high because they are frozen!
FROZEN! Like Ice cream! I get out a bowl, scoop up some Vanilla & Cookie Dough Ice Cream and sit down to check out what my Blogger friends are up to, Hey! I tried!

Oh the honesty! It rings true for me as my carrots find themselves on the same path are yours. REALLY. And don't get me started on cucumbers... Ice Cream is definitely better. :o)

you are very funny !
it's fun to DRAW carrots with Derwent Inktense pencils [ of course ! ]
and my favorite ice cream is Ben and Jerry's chocolate chip cookie dough !


You are SO funny!!! Listen I love carrots and i am lazy, but i love carrots so much that even though baby carrots are easier to eat...no wash no peel....but NO TASTE...I will go the distance for REAL carrots.... :D

i couldn't resist this.
i LOL'd the minute i saw it.
when i made my pot roast in the crock pot the other day...
yup. the baby carrots were frozen. and NOT in the freezer!!!
what's up with THAT???
i don't like raw carrots. dorito chips yes. carrots. no.
it takes FOREVER to use them up too. the bags are for FAMILIES.
hey... though... the crockpot thing with the carrots and taters and dry lipton soup mix and then covered with water over the roast or chicken and veggies... YUM! been eating on it all week. not too bad.
don't answer this. just couldn't resist blabbing about carrots. :)♥
