Easy Veggie Dish

I like to cook, that is when I have the time and the available ingredients. Often, I'm coming home from having picked up the kids after work; I'm tired, Hubby is tired and everyone is hungry. So, all-too-often, we resort to take-out.

But, last night I was determined to break that cycle. We had left-over pork loin in the fridge (thanks, Mom) and I thought some veggies would be a good side dish. So, I asked Hubby to pick up some red pototoes, butternut squash and a red onion. I chopped up these items into bite size pieces, placed them on tin foil, drizzled with olive oil, parsley, thyme, sea salt and pepper. I then baked them at 375 degrees for about 40 minues. Yum! The veggies would also be good served over rice. You can always change up the ingredients, from squash and zucchini with mushrooms and onions to cauliflower and broccoli with onions. Just be sure to add some zesty herbs and spices for that special kick.

So, an easy veggie dish that's a little different from your standard green beans. I can't say that the kids liked it, but they hardly like anything these days, so what ya gonna do?

Hope everyone on the east coast and regions north are keeping warm. I've heard the U.K. is having quite the cold snap as well, so bundle up my friends! We have a winter-weather watch here, possibly three to five inches of snow tonight and very cold temps. Everyone in this region tends to lose their minds when the weather turns bad. They might as well post a sign at the stateline that says, "Sorry, we're closed," because we just can't seem to handle it here. Wish I could hibernate until spring. :)

That IS an easy veggie dish... and one I think my kids would even eat!
Thanks!

AND thank you for your sweet comments. We really aren't that special - well, my husband is! Tune in next to Part II: how we met!

Another really easy thing to do is buy 4 chicken breasts, surround them with cut up potatoes, onions, anything else you like, sprinkle whatever herb you're in the mood for on top, roast, eat. ONE DISH!
