Another Monday, Another Bowl of Autumn Veggies

When last night's side dishes become tonight's dinner

Savory and Delicious!

Today was the Monday-est of Mondays, so we all ate our favorites from the fridge today.  This is my bowl… all the side dishes and roasted vegetables made yesterday.

In fact one of my favorite parts of cooking on Sundays is knowing that we will have extra for dinner the next day.  Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Roasted Turmeric Cauliflower, Roasted Broccolini, Roasted Chickpeas, a Fall Cabbage Slaw and Avocado for good measure.  Because is there anything better than creamy avocado with roasted veggies?
