On Sunday evening, the reality of the upcoming week sets in. Where I used to panic about Monday, I now prepare myself on Sunday for whatever the next few days will bring. I have started roasting a bunch of veggies to serve as a side dish for Sunday dinner, but I save the leftovers for other meals. On top of greens, roasted veggies make a salad more filling. I mix the veggies with whole wheat pasta and goat cheese for a hearty dinner. Adding roasted veggies to a quesadilla makes this quick staple a more well-rounded meal. Stuffing a whole wheat pita with roasted veggies makes a great lunch. The options are endless.
Each week I mix it up a little. Sometimes I just do root veggies like yams, potatoes, carrots, rutabaga, and parsnips. I also love making a Mediterranean mix with eggplant, sweet red peppers, onions, garlic, and olives. Not matter what I roast, it makes my kitchen toasty and I am ready to begin another week.
