So do you guys have any big plans for Easter weekend?…. You know the kind involving a big meal, egg hunts, basket of goodies and all.
Well not to much to share on my end. We’re usually pretty low key and kind of plan last minute.
Cause you know what, sometimes I just don’t wanna have to decide.
Whether it be what to cook for dinner, plans for the weekend or not.
Sometimes it’s just more relaxing not planning and just having a lazy day doing it as it comes.
And to me my friends, that’s a good weekend!
Low key, good food, hanging out in the sunshine without a plan. Cause really those are some of my favorite kind of days.
Okay, so enough of my rambling on about doing nothing and let’s get back to the carrots.
I chose a selection of rainbow carrots just cause I love the beautiful vibrant colors of these…not to mention the flavor, but you could certainly just use orange carrots.
Since really anytime you coat something in a buttery garlic sauce you know it’s just got to be good 🙂
