Yep, count me in there. Can't _stand_ cooked carrot. Steamed or roasted,
it doesn't matter: I'd much rather them raw and crunchy. Absolutely no
idea why that is, but they do taste very different indeed when cooked,
and I find them almost inedible.

Oh yeah. Roasted onions are the BEST. (But then again, I like raw onion

But damn you, Erik: now you've got me hankering for roasted onions,
and it's only ten to nine in the morning here. Also, I know for a fact
that my wife intends to make a chicken stir-fry tonight. Nice, but I
somehow doubt she'll work roasted onions into it.
