Recipe For Roast Vegetables

I do not often get sick, but when I do, I do it properly. Each year from 2001 to 2009 we went away over the June 16 long weekend. Each year as we got in the car I needed a box of tissues and ended up trying to scramble to get something to take the sore throat away. In 2009 I got bronchitis and the antibiotics and cortisone must have had a long term effect and I had not been sick for 2 years, until July when we went away! I had a sore throat which went away and I went to gym, and came back with a faucet where my nose used to be. When I feel like this, my taste buds do not co-operate and I crave easy, simple, hearty food. These roast vegetables fit the bill. They are full of goodness and vitamins and the only thing required to make them perfect is a little bit of patience.

  1. I totally agree Tandy – I crave roasted veggies which I mash on my plate – smother in a sauce and top with butter and balsamic vinegar – or I make roasted butternut and potatoes and drown them in peri peri cheese sauce. My boday says no to meat but yebo yes yes yes to veggies – if I am completely man down i will even just steam whole heads of brocolli and cauliflower! I hope you guys are having the very best of a weekend and good times together xxxxxx I wish you a very Buon Giorno ……. as in, a GREAT day together xxxx jan
