Sautéed Potatoes and Carrots

Total time: 30 minutes 
      As carrots and potatoes cook in about the same amount of time, why not cook them together? I peel the carrots but only scrub the potatoes.  We use butter and oil together - the oil keeps the butter from burning, the butter adds flavor to the dish.
