I am by no means obsessed with carrots but I did have to buy a lot for my last recipe (it was cheaper!) and so I was looking for ways to use them all up. Lo and Behold I found a recipe for carrot muffins! I'm a big fan of carrot muffins when I see them anywhere else. I also had to distract myself from a very upsetting World Cup game and nothing heals the wounds of soccer-related disappointment like baking. I'm a big fan of these muffins and I enjoy telling myself that they are relatively healthy and still tasty. Of course, I'm a big fan of muffins in general... and other deliciously portable food.

Well the plan for today was to make homemade pickles. I've been eying a few good recipes and I was super tempted. Unfortunately I could not find pickling cucumbers anywhere in Denver! I tried whole foods, Sunflower farmers market and King soopers but to no avail. Sad times. Well I had a meeting with Big Brothers Big Sisters at 5:45 (wish me luck, I want a little!) so I wanted to pull together a quick, light dinner that was not cheese and pickles and crackers. I have had this recipe saved in my bookmarks for a while I decided to finally try it. It is a turkish haydari with carrots. My mom has a Turkish cookbook but it's definitely lacking in the vegetarian options so this is quite exciting. Also, except for the carrots which cost me a hefty 99 cents at the grocery store, I had all of the ingredients already.
