Sesame Carrot Slices
To accompany the main dish, serve Sesame Carrot Slices shared by Jacqueline Thompson Graves of Cumming, Georgia. The sweet carrot coins are cooked on the stovetop until crisp-tender and are dressed up with a mild mixture of butter, brown sugar and sesame seeds. "This carrot dish is a welcome change of pace," Jacqueline assures. "It can be made more or less spicy, whichever your taste dictates, by altering the amount of hot pepper sauce," she adds.
