Honey Glazed Carrots

I served these alongside the roast for a good Sunday dinner. The honey gave them just a little bit of sweet but not too much--I don't like really sweet cooked vegetables. The cilantro was a good flavor combination with the honey, and a little salt finished them off. I thought they were great! And, they're cheap to make!

I found the recipe from an old friend from church! She was always someone I looked up to, and it was fun to find her blog! It's a great name-- Daisies n Dump Trucks-- for her little boy and girl.
Another steamy picture!!


Honey Glazed Carrots

1 cup water
1 t salt
1 lb carrots
1 T honey
1 T chopped cilantro (optional)

Bring one cup of water and salt to a boil. Peel and chop carrots into bite sized pieces (as Kristen says, on the diagonal is more fun to eat!). Put carrots into boiling water and cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Drain off water and add honey and cilantro. Let sit for 5 minutes for flavors to blend. (Or, as Kristen says, mingle and introduce themselves to each other:)
