Zesty Carrots

Mr. Fuzzy Bum the cat is scared to death of our stereo.
We think it is the bass, but as soon as he hears the power button click....he is GONE

Hubby had the music going while we were cleaning and doing all that fun Lennon was just hanging out in our room. Enjoying the queen sized bed all to himself.

Then...the unthinkable.
Mom opened a can of tuna.
He heard it. He could smell it....but that scary noise box was still going.
What to do, what to do?

Solution: I will stand in the doorway and yowl loudly. My people will take pity on me and make the world a better place.
(we all remember what happened the last time he didn't get tuna juice, right?)

Hubby, who is pretty anti cat....reminded me again why I married him.
He heard Lennon. Stopped the music. Walked down the hall and talked to him. Walked him all the way out to the kitchen, and brought him right to the bowl of juice.


Side note...actually about the food...
I do not care for spicy food. I just don't have the taste buds for it. These carrots made me nervous.
I ate them. My friend who is worse than me about spice ate them.
Try them, don't let the horseradish scare you!

2 Lbs baby carrots
⅔ Cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp grated onion
2 Tbsp prepared horseradish
¼ Tsp salt
½ Tsp ground pepper
½ Tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Cup panko crumbs
¼ Cup butter (melted)

1. Cook carrots until tender

3. Spoon carrots into 2 quart baking dish
4. In bowl, combine mayonnaise, carrot liquid, onion, horseradish, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire
5. Spoon mixture over carrots
6. Combine breadcrumbs and butter, sprinkle over carrots
7. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes
