“What veg shall we have with that then?” I would ask out loud.
“Carrots?” Dad would say.
If Dad had his way carrots would be served with every meal. For some reason he has a penchant for them. Pile them high on his plate & he’ll eat them. Zephy likes a carrot too & happily eats them raw as an afternoon snack. I think it’s the sweetness that lures them in. They are very non-offensive, they go with most things & can be stored for ages without going off. You can’t ask for much more from a veg.
I let the bourguignon cook for about an hour & a half on a low heat. I wanted to have a little bite left in the carrots & be able to chew on the meat. The last time I made it, I cooked it for so long it all disintegrated.
