peas and carrots baby food

10.25.2012

Ever wonder why peas and carrots go so well together? No, this is an onset to a joke. Maybe its the contrasting colors. Maybe its the different textures. Or maybe its the combination of the flavors. Whatever it is, when you put them together, the two is better than one by itself. Just like people.
