Cream & Honey Glazed Carrots with Olives

creamed-carrotsAs my daughter Suzie and I were figuring out our after Christmas menu she mentioned carrots I had made years back.

I did not even remember it until she reminded me. I am always thinking up different ways to cook things and unfortunately I am not really good at writing things down along the way. I had made these up and served them on a Christmas past and they got rave reviews and I promptly forgot all about them.

So again the two of us winged it and this is the result.
We were looking for something simple that could be made ahead and simply warmed up the day we needed them.

This would do the trick.
