I don't remember ever seeing a storm like this before. While there was devastation on the east coast, we were (and still are) under high wind warnings with the winds between 30 and 50 mph.
There are gale force winds on Lake Michigan and people are being advised to stay away from the lake shore. Chicago is over 1,000 miles away from where the hurricane (now a superstorm) came ashore.
My family in New England lost power for awhile but they are fine. Stephanie said they had to eat their dinner by candlelight and Anna asked, "Are we going to sing Happy Day to me?", hehehe. I remember when Christopher was so little and thought candlelight at the dinner table always meant a birthday!
With the winds howling outside last night, I felt the need for comfort food! I already had chicken defrosted to make homemade chicken nuggets but as I thought about side dishes, only roasted veggies sounded good.
So I cleaned and quartered three potatoes, one sweet potato, one butternut squash, and sliced three carrots... tossed them in some veggie oil... and roasted them in the oven until they were just right.
An absolutely delicious way to use those bits and pieces of root veggie leftovers. They were so pretty, I had to take a picture! My husband still shakes his head and is baffled when I take pictures of dinner.
