Come Roasting Season

Roasted turkey breast. Roasted cauliflower. Roasted potatoes. Roasted onions. All simply rolled in a small sploosh of olive oil, salted and peppered before sliding them into a 375 degree oven for an hour or so. You can get fancier than that, but you don't have to.

It's getting to be that time of year. Rooting around in the fridge, I discovered a couple of Yukon gold potatoes, a small head of cauliflower and half a gigantic onion to roast alongside the Diestel turkey breast I bought while I was over in Marin looking for a present for the baby's mother. She did all the heavy lifting in producing this beautiful baby, after all - she deserves a treat, too.

I found the perfect present for her, a couple of fun things for the Big Sister (who is now a very grownup 3.5 years old) and even a few goodies for the newest family member - a onesie that says "Party in my crib. 3am", a tiny black hoodie with a tiger on the back and a pair of fuzzy pajamas. I also found the turkey breast, perfect for the start of roasting season.

It's almost impossible to think we were avoiding using the oven only days ago!
What a beautiful repast.

I LOVE roast cauliflower, just love it. The rest of the meal sounds pretty damn fine too.

It must the season. I roasted cauliflower too. Fill the tummy and warm the house.

Cookiecrumb, thanks, it seemed pure.

Ms Mouse, me, too - brings out that nutty flavor. Killer.

Greg, great minds run in the same channels, right? Happy Fall!
