I know this is totally random. Lemme give you the back story:  I just walked into the break room to get some water.  I saw that someone had left a box of muffins on the table (they were there for the taking.  if you leave something on the table in the break room its fair game ... them's the rules) and I got pretty excited.  I don't normally indulge in sweet breakfast treats, but being that its Friday I thought what could it hurt to have a little muffin as a mid-morning snack?

Before I can get over close enough to the box to read the label, I start wondering what kind they are.  Maybe blueberry with a nice sugary topping?  Chocolate Chip?  Lemon Poppyseed?  I probably would have even gone for that random orange-blossom flavor.  But no.

Carrot Nut.


Then that got me thinking, why do people go and ruin a good thing by putting carrots in it?  Seriously!!!  Those little buggers ruin EVERYTHING in my opinion:  cakes, breads, muffins, soups, casseroles, UGGGGH.  They seriously make me angry.

I can deal with them raw, dipped in veggie dip, or in a salad.  That is perfectly fine.  I occasionally will even eat them for a snack.  But if you want to offend me, you'll put them in my soup.  Or cook them and serve as a side dish.  Or put a recipe for some kind of stewed carrots up on your blog.  I hate.

In more pleasant news, yesterday was W's 10 month Birthday!!!  I'll do a 10-month picture post as soon as we take the pictures!!

It kills me that you have to suffer through carrot cake to get Cream Cheese frosting. It is almost like someone decided that the frosting was simply too good on it's own, and therefore needed to always be attached to vegetables!!!

I'm just really hoping I've never had any carrot cake or muffins or anything when you've been to our house! I don't think so. And I'm pretty sure I don't make any other carrot thing, as Jim, Ben or Matt surely wouldn't eat it. That really is true about the cream cheese frosting - that is so the best part of carrot cake! This just struck me as such a funny little "rant"!

I can't stand anything with carrots in it either. I love them raw, but any other way- yuck!

If carrots are good for your eyes, i'd rather just go blind.
