The Sadness of the Carrots #disappointment

So I decided to make glazed carrots. They tasted good but they looked ugly. In fact, these were the ugliest carrots ever.

Sad, Ugly Carrots

sadcarrotsWhat made them so darned UGLY? I didn’t think I put too much cornstarch in the glaze, but maybe I did. That, plus the fact that I was making do with canned carrots, and they kind of mushed up.

BUT THEY TASTED REALLY REALLY GOOD!!! That’s the important thing, right? RIGHT??

I squeezed an orange into the pan, added some vegan margarine, brown sugar and cinnamon, then the carrots. When all was hot, I mixed some cornstarch into cold water and stirred it in.

Maybe it was too much cornstarch, or maybe I cooked it too long. Whatever, those poor sad carrots were not attractive. Still, as my grandfather used to say, “It don’t hurt the eatin’ of it.”

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write something with the color orange in it.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
