Honey & Butter Glazed Carrots Wrapped with Bacon

There is a reason that I have been MIA for a while....I have spent the bulk of the summer doing as little as possible...I have been really lazy!  As much as I enjoy cooking, my hubby and I have been grilling, grazing, and grabbing  bites at local restaurants.  I have to confess, I am totally into this! Even so, I decided to martyr myself last night, and cook a real dinner at home.  I met some friends for lunch Saturday, and they were raving about some carrots they had eaten.  I came home and Googled for recipes.  I found one on The Bacon Republic, and adapted it to my taste.  I served these yummy carrots with stuffed red, yellow, green and orange peppers with a tomato gravy, and mashed potatoes.  We loved the carrots..we ate all of them!  Bacon does make everything better!

Ingredients:
12 whole carrots, peeled and tops removed
12 strips bacon
3 TBS honey
3 TBS butter, melted
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:
Wash and peel carrots, remove tops.  Melt butter, mix with honey, and pour over carrots.  Cover carrots well with the mixture, and let sit for a few minutes.  When ready to cook carrots, wrap each one in bacon, then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.  Place them on a cookie sheet lined with non-stick aluminum foil.  Place in 375F oven, and bake about 20-30 minutes until carrots are tender, and bacon browned; turn when cooking.
