My mom would always tell me this whenever she served carrots. Growing up I hated carrots. She knew I wanted pretty eyes. Why not I’m a girl. She’s said eat the carrots they make your eyes pretty. Then I’d gobble them down.
It wasn’t until I got older I found a love for carrots. Someone told me to dip them in blue cheese salad dressing. I ate them all of the time. Somewhere I became lactose intolerant and no more molded cheese for me.
I still love carrots. I eat them all of the time. Often times I eat them raw, but I will eat them steamed with other veggies. As I age, I have a tendency to eat what’s good for me like it or not. My how we change when wiser.
