Roasted Carrots with Ginger Miso Dressing

When I was 11 my mom gave the choice of having a regular birthday party with many people or I could have a grown up dinner and sleepover for a select few friends. Since I was about to turn 12 and that's basically an adult, intimate dinner was the obvious choice. The fanciest restaurant I frequented back then was a hibachi restaurant that had an indoor water fountain, complete with a pond full of live fish. I told you it was fancy.
