Sides

Maple Roasted Root Vegetables

Do you ever have one of those days where you just can’t stop eating? Just constantly hungry, even though you’ve already eaten way more than you normally eat in a day? That’s been my day. I’d already passed my normal calorie intake for the whole day before dinner! The fact that my lunch date made cookies didn’t help. 🙂 And less than an hour after dinner, I went looking for something else. (I’m actually eating a sandwich as I’m typing this.)

Not to worry. As long as you’re not having one of those days, this is a very filling side dish. And even if you are it’s still really good. Pairs well with pork dishes. We had it with ham steak tonight.
