Taste Buds: Fresh Roasted Vegetables

011212_roastedVegetables1

I haven’t really been inspired to cook, all my cooking/baking got sucked into the marathon holiday cooking 2011 and I guess I needed a little bit of a time out from the kitchen. For the past two weeks we have been ordering in or eating sandwiches for dinner and frankly I am sick of it. So today, when my plans for this evening got cancelled, I decided to make something fun for dinner tonight.

It has been so warm here, even for LALA land. With temperatures in the eightys it feels more summer than winter. I went to the market and picked up some nice yummy vegetables. I wasn’t picky I just picked up things that looked good and then I came home to play. This recipe is deceptively simple but by roasting them you get a fantastic full flavor of summer on your plate.
