On the menu for today was a delicious sounding Roasted Vegetable Medley. I chose that since we had homemade perogis in the freezer and a jar of Marinara that Chef Chad had made. I wanted to create something and I though it sounded pretty delicious.
The recipe called for roasted bell peppers & since I didn't have any I had to roast them first. I kept thinking, "isn't there an easier way? What if I just make it like this...." Then I remembered! I just need to start at the beginning of the directions
and go step by step! How did it go? Delicious!
Roasting the pepper was not that big of a deal, I adjusted the rack in my oven to be at the highest level, turned it on broil and cracked the oven a little. I had a little problem at first when one of them touched the element and some fire started but
I just got out my tongs and moved it over. Every 5 min. I would turn the pepper and then when it was all black I wrapped it in saran and put it on the stove. I should have put it in the sink instead because after it cooled down and I had to tear the skin
off there was a big mess on the stove for me to clean. I should also mention that I put them on a baking sheet when they were in the oven. If I had not done that they would have dripped all over.
After roasting the peppers and cutting up the squash, potatoes, parsnips, carrots and asparagus I was all set for 5:00 to arrive. That is when I needed to put it all together. I really liked how I did all my prep work in the morning and then was ready
to literally throw it all together when dinner time came around.
All in all todays dinner was a hit, and all I had to do was follow the directions!
