I went for a drive into the country, to a number of small towns just out side Melbourne the other week, to show my Parents the country side as my dad had been complaining that he never got to see anything outside Melbourne when he visits. So this called for a road trip.
One little town, Woodend, had a farmers market, with local produce, when we were there. Although it was quite a small market in comparison to others I have been to, it had a good variety of produce. You could buy live chickens for $30, which I soooo would have done if I had space for them. However sadly I don't, thats what you get when you live in the city.
Well my Dad wandered off as he does and he came back with these amazing coloured carrots. He said "here I bought these for you". Well I had know idea what to do with them as I had never cooked with coloured carrots, so they sat in my fridge for a couple of weeks, until they could sit no more and I really had to find a use for them. I had ideas of amazing colourful salad's however I think I left them a little to long for that, so I threw them into a roasting dish with some other vegetables and roasted them. To be served with some Sticky Pork Chops.
