I'm always a mixture of amused and grateful about the amount of produce that is given to me. I hear from people something similar to "I know you'll do something with _______."
When I picked up groceries this week I debated buying carrots. I told myself that I would use up some of the canned carrots I have and went on my merry way.
Yesterday I came home to a huge bag of fresh, local carrots.....a gift from my brother, who was given them by an elderly lady in his neighborhood. There ended up being three that I had to toss, but I have more than enough carrots for the week now.
In fact, I just finished telling my daughter that we would be having carrots in everything.
