I had some macaroni salad once that had a lot of shredded carrot in it, and I LOVED it!! It was the best I've ever had, but have never been able to replicate it. I make mine with miracle whip, only way DH will eat it, but I prefer mayo. I've put carrots in mine, but DH picks them out.

My kids always ate veggies,,,,,I had one that wanted onions hidden and one that didn't like chunks of tomatoes....but if there were onions and carrots cooked with a roast you better fix a lot of them everyone liked them....I started putting big celery chunks in there also.......I think it was the meat flavor they were after....lol

I remember one time being at an aunt's house or something and she fixed candied carrots.....while I didn't think they were bad my kids said they were gross.....you can just never tell with kids......

My macaroni salad became known as Mom's, veggie salad with pasta I would put everything in there and topped it off with shredded carrots.....

Thanks for the recipes! The Brown Sugared Carrot recipe was just like the one my mom made. I did that last night, I made them with butter, brown sugar, and then used Karen's suggestion of maple syrup. Boy did it smell good while cooking!! Both my girls were drooling. DD6 ate a few, tried to make me think she liked them, and then I finally told her she was off the hook...lol. She tried, so that is more than she would have done a year ago. My DD3 are quite a few, so I think it's a side that will be on our table every once in a while!

Yup, now I'm hungry for foil dinners! It's one of my fav fall things, I'll have to plan to make them soon. I remember one day in school, we had 'outdoor' school, and we made what they called "hobo" dinners....I thought it was the worst thing in the world, because I was used to my moms, who used lots of cheese and butter...lol. I wanted FALVOR! I think I told them what I thought too...hehe.

Boy, I'm getting hungry for apple pies, and turkey...!

Whe it cools off enough here to have to oven on for a lenth of time, I'm making me some foil dinnes!!!! It's still in to 90's, blah!!!

My dad hated grits, from NY, but stationed in GA in the 50s. I love them, my kids & DH don't really care for them.
Levi makes what they call "hobo dinners" in scouts. Cooked in a foil packet, but placed in a cabbage leaf, first. It has hamburger made into meatballs, carrots, potatoes & onions with butter, salt & pepper. We made them recently but added a bit more seasoning & some diced smoked sausage -- quite tasty, even the other two who were totally opposed to the whole idea scarfed them up & I ate all the cabbage leaves!
