Looks like a keeper recipe, Jane Marie. Roasted vegetables are as 'good as it gets' and with the bountiful Michigan harvest, we are most lucky! (I hate to leave since you offer not only great recipes but lots of my favorite music ... on both blogs!)

Yum! I have some turmeric in the cupboard, and I love cooking with it. But never enough recipes in my books to use the wonderful stuff. Thanks! We'll be trying this one.

This sounds like it would be a yummy dish for when the fall weather starts to creep in. I love roasted onions so I will have to remember this one.

I have been meaning to stop by this blog and keep forgetting- I'm glad I finally remembered to do so today as I have enjoyed my visit. :-)
