Why A Carrot?
Well…I’m quite a tall, skinny thing. This past Thanksgiving I was visiting my father’s house and had some extra time on my hands so I decided to start doodling anthropomorphized versions of the veggies that were being used to prepare our feast. The cutest veg in my opinion ended up being a carrot, and I kind of just decide, “Yes. That is me. I am that carrot.” And so it began.
What’s This Blog Even About?
Well, mostly. I think the point of The Contented Carrot is to not be content with just buying everything pre-made at the store or buying the cheapest-of-the-cheap store-brand crap. I’m working to become aware of the elusive “middle ground” in which one makes smart decisions about what to buy and what to make in order to enjoy great, creative recipes without unnecessarily spending unreasonable amounts of money on “premium” crap.
I was once a contented carrot, happy to eat average food at average prices, but it’s all about the exploration from here on out! Join me in my adventure to shake up my cooking routine and learn all the best
and worst the world of cooking and creating has to offer us!
