Yesterday my pal Bob gave me a big bag of those "baby cut" carrots,
( see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_carrot )
Bob always had a good store of them in his home because his sweet Westie "Maggie" (full name Margaret Rose - after Q.E. II's sister) would eat one or two each evening as a bedtime snack.
Sadly to say Maggie is with us no more after her health rapidly declined, as a result of kidney failure.
Today (Friday) I grated some of them and made a cold carrot salad with raisins, finely chopped pineapple and a bit of mayonnaise. Went down well with some salmon which I had poached earlier in the day and then ate cold, and with some good tomatoes which I lavished with fresh basil.
I dressed the salmon with a simple sauce which I made with mayonnaise and sweet pickle relish.
Tomorrow (Saturday) I shall make some ginger carrot soup. May the food gods grant me patience as I peel and grate the ginger.
