Heat butter in saucepan on medium high heat, add carrots and sautee on a fairly high temperature to start browning them.
Once carrots are nicely brown on at least one side, turn heat down to medium and cook for 5 minutes until they are a bit softer.
Add granny smith chopped into small triangles or pieces about the same size as the carrots.
Cook until the apple is mostly cooked, but not mush. About 5 minutes
Add parsley and cook only 1 minute more, just to blend the parsley into the dish
Remove from heat and add juice from 1 lemon and the salt and pepper
Serve and enjoy!!
And, life in Oberlin is as normal as can be. Laundry fresh from the line, ah summer.
