Company Carrots
(Through the ages, people have gone to enormous trouble to camouflage
carrots. Once I saw a recipe that called for carrots, strained honey,
marjram, grated cheese, and chestnuts, which is like sewing diamond
buttons on denim jeans.)

Cut a reasonable number of carrots into strips - so you have 2 cupfuls,
say. Cook them till they're tender and drain them. Then mix these
things together in a heavy pan:
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
juice of half a lemon

Add the carrots and sauté them about 10 minutes, stirring so that all
the strips get well acquainted with the sauce.
