Mom's Infamous Marinated Carrots

Mom was always a wonderful cook and many years ago she started making these marinated carrots and would serve them often to company.  I've been missing her so much that I thought I'd put the recipe here to honour her...
She had a true servant's heart.
You will need:
3 - 5 lbs carrots
1 medium green pepper sliced
1 medium onion sliced
1 can tomato soup
1/2 cup salad oil
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tsp prepared mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Slice carrots and cook for 10 minutes - drain and cool.
Meanwhile, mix remaining ingredients except for the green pepper, bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
Pour over carrots, add green pepper slices, mix and marinate in fridge overnight.

Mmmm... I make this recipe too, except I call it Copper Pennies - I slice the carrots thin so they're the size of coins. And I like them served warm the best.

Yummm, happy memories :) We've eaten them warm and cold and they're great!
