As some of you may be able to tell, I love color. My kitchen is bright red, my living room is aqua, and my children’s bedroom is yellow. However, these colors are constantly changing. It is funny though, because I only seem to own black clothes.
I get absolutely giddy when I eat something colorful, and when that something is actually healthy for me I am beside myself!
Last weekend I went to my favorite outdoor spot, Suzie’s Farm. I will post more about this when I can figure how to post a new posting under the San Diego Eats tab. Damn WordPress, things can be just so complicating sometimes! Anyway, while I was there I picked about 10 pounds of multi-colored carrots. Roasted, these carrots make a stunning, and delicious addition to dinner plates. I have seen these carrots for sale at Whole Foods and local farmer’s markets.
After eating approximately 7.8 pounds of the carrots, my children begged me to not make them again. I figured that by this point I had already contributed enough into their “good eyesight” and that they deserved a cake….with the purple carrots! They did not complain one bit when I informed them that they would be once again consuming the carrots, but this time in dessert form.
Besides being beautiful in color, purple carrots are extra sweet. I was a bit disappointed that the purple did not stand out in the cake, but after one bite I was over it.
