Oh hey friends. Happy Monday! This weekend I spent time at Deer Valley Resort for the Better Blog Retreat. Of course, I’ll tell you more about it in an upcoming post, but for now all I want to mention is that I CANNOT even begin to explain to you how completely gorgeous Utah is. I had no idea!
For the rest of the week, Tony and I are driving down to Moab, Utah to see my Mom, then we’re headed to Denver for a little vacation. Honestly, we need it. The past month has been CRAZY face due to moving, painting, traveling, projects and basically everything else that life throws at you.
And now it’s almost November? I just can’t even.
It would be terrific if I could just lock myself in a Trader Joe’s for Thanksgiving. Think about it… wine, pumpkin EVERYTHING, chocolate, salads and Wally. Unfortunately, we probably all have a little cooking to do and I’ve got some FANTASTIC recipes coming up for the holidays just for you.
First, let’s start with the classic must-have roasted veggies made with garlic, oregano and vegan parmesan cheese (thanks to my friends at GO Veggie!). As many of you know, I’ve been making recipes with GO Veggie! products for the past year. I think it’s a wonderful alternative to regular cheese and perfect for those with sensitivities around the holidays. Have you tried it yet?
Tony’s obsession with oregano is spinning wildly out of control. I have to buy it frequently because he puts it on his popcorn almost nightly. I have to admit, it’s really growing on me too and so I thought it would a great herb to add to beautiful olive oil roasted veggies. Plus, with the addition of vegan parmesan, there’s really no reason not to make these. They’re flavorful, healthy and beautiful on any table.
I do have to say though that these veggies would be FABULOUS tossed with some cooked quinoa for a nice vegetarian dinner. Talk about flavor!
Oh and please, don’t forget to tell me your favorite places in Denver in the comments so I can be sure to check them out!
