I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

Kickass Carrots!

This recipe is from Pioneer Woman and features fresh thyme. I used the last of our thyme from our garden at home.

Ingredients:
12 Carrots
Handful of fresh thyme
Salt and Pepper
1/4 Cup Olive Oil

The recipe is super easy and super yummy! My mom had found the recipe online and I must admit that I was a little skeptical at first, but these carrots are absolutely delish and I will definitely make these again.
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Cut the carrots lengthwise-this ensures that they will cook evenly.
3. Mix them in the olive oil (the recipe said 1/2 cup, but I think it would be fine to use less.)
4. Sprinkle thyme and a little salt and pepper.
5. Bake for 35 minutes.

The carrots will look a little withered when they come out, but that's normal. You can eat them with a fork or just pick them up with your fingers and eat them like fries. The only problem is that just like fries, they will be gone quickly, so make plenty.
