Vegan {takes some thought}

Had company for dinner who is Vegan, (they eat nothing that has a mom).

~Peacock Vegetables~
From Midwest Living

2 medium red onions, cut into eights
2 small yellow summer squash, cut into 1/2 inch slices
2 small zucchini, cut into1/2 thick strips
3 red, yellow and green sweet peppers, seeded and cut into 1/2 inch strips
4-5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano. crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a 13X9x2 inch baking pan, combine vegetables and garlic

In a screw top jar, combine the parsley, vinegar, olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper. Cover the jar tightly and shake the oil mixture well.

Pour over vegetables and toss to coat. Bake the coated vegetables in a 425 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until they're crisp-tender, stirring twice.

Makes 8 servings.

I served this meal with Irish soda bread (Instead of Butter milk {keeping it Vegan} I substituted soy milk with 1 tablespoon of vinegar). It was delicious!

Dessert was a simple bowl of mixed fruit.

We all enjoyed this meal very much and so I will definitely be making it again soon, only next time, the family has requested chicken on the side.


Reading a good book, "Man - The dwelling place of God" by A.W. Tozer

"If I can't have both truth and happiness, give me truth. We'll have a long time to be happy in heaven." A.W.Tozer

Something about the way he writes that just makes me want to slow down a little and soak in the message, pushing me yet a little closer towards the Heavenly Father.
