Notes

Don’t have to stand there and grate carrot after carrot on your box grater. Pull out that little attachment that comes with your food processor, you know the one with the box grater holes on it that gets thrown in the back of the cupboard never to be seen again? Yeah that thing is super handy, and once you realize just how handy, you will be using it ALL the time.
