Eat Lots of Veggies

I went to the doctor yesterday. The week started with a sore throat and by Wednesday I had a slight cough. My slight coughs usually turn into something bigger. The doctor said to take the weekend and just rest. Drink lots of liquids and eat lots of fruits and vegetables. After my appointment I made a quick stop at Bishop's Orchard for provisions. This is what I envisioned as the doctor was giving me my instructions -
I roasted a head of Cauliflower, an Eggplant, 2 Zucchini, Baby Carrots, Asparagus, Golden Beets and Kohlrabi (first time trying this). I tossed all the veggies except the Beets with olive oil, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and thyme before roasting. Put the Cauliflower and Kohlrabi on a foil lined sheet pan and roasted at 452˚ for 20 minutes. Stirred them and roasted them for another 20 minutes. The Eggplant, Zucchini, Baby Carrots took about 10 minutes and then another 10 after I stirred them. The Beets were coated with olive oil and thyme and wrapped in foil. They took about 50 minutes, then I peeled and sliced them. I topped them with Panko bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese and popped them in the oven for 10 minutes.

Chris did the grocery shopping today, Thank You! He picked up a rotisserie Chicken.  I also tossed in some potatoes to roast too!
