Honey Glazed Carrots

Here's another simple side dish for holiday meals – just a little special, not too sweet, and easy to make. Not every dish on the table needs to be complicated.  
This is one of our favorites. If you don’t want to use fresh carrots, frozen ones work well, too, even a quart of canned ones. Cook them according to the package directions, and then add the glaze.  You can slice your carrots a day ahead, and refrigerate, covered.  Mix your brown sugar and honey in a small covered dish and refrigerate it overnight too.  Serve in your best, prewarmed vegetable dish.
