Clouds at Sunset

Clouds at Sunset

"We gave a weather-themed birthday party for my brother, who constantly keeps an eye on conditions. It was fun to come up with appropriate names for some of his favorite recipes. Fluffy garlic mashed potatoes and carrots became Clouds at Sunset. They're topped with a gravy of ground beef and peas we called Pea Soup Fog for the occasion. -Ndara Pike, Tempe, Arizona"

I LOVE this recipe. My children adore it, and it is an easy way to get them to eat cooked carrots. It's easy to make and is a great alternative to casseroles.
