Occasionaly I have some "ole" left over carrots in my crisper, just waiting to be used. Before they go limp, I have to use them up. So why not a carrot pie?? So I put together this simple, quick and easy ole pie.I have made this many times, and I hope you like it as much as I do. I have to admit I love butternut squash pie, more than pumpkin or sweet potato pie. But this one may take it's place! Actually what ever I have on hand works for me. This would make a nice dish for any occasion. But how about for Fathers Day! What man don't like pie!!!
