Carrots and Chard

It was brought to my attention today that I cook things that sound weird. My family was over for lunch and I said that I was going to make carrots and chard to go with some leftover ham. My cousin asked if chard was a kind of cheese. No, Swiss chard is a green, leafy vegetable that I add to everything when it's in season.

Anyway, here's my weird sounding recipe:

Roasted Carrots and Chard

lots of peeled and sliced carrots (you don't have to peel them, but I don't like the skins)
chopped chard or kale
butter (I use two tablespoons or so)

Mix everything together and bake at 400 for at least 30 min. I like to bake the carrots until they are browned and fully roasted.
