Roasted Vegetables

Hi everyone. This will be the last in the series for the new year’s dinner. It has been fun writing that, but there is so much to talk about out there that i am itching to find and try out new things. So, on with the show.


3 lbs new potatoes
2 1/2 – 3lbs carrots
Kosher salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1/4 cup oil of your choice. I prefer olive if I have it.

New Potatoes

Rinsed and ready for roasting.

First I washed three pounds of new potatoes. I bought these from Green Eggs and Ham, a local vendor at our farmer’s market.

Unpeeled and uncut.

Unpeeled carrots

Then I peeled and cut up most of a bag of carrots into manageable bites. I tossed the whole mixture in approximately 1/4c oil, kosher salt and pepper. I like how kosher salt explodes becomes crusty on whatever you roast it with and you get little explosions of salt in your mouth.

Ready for the oven

Put the pan of potatoes into the oven at 350 degrees for 40-60 minutes until the potatoes are fork tender. These would be best to put in during the last hour of your turkey cooking and by the way, if you don’t have a lid for your smaller roaster, you can put foil on your stuffing pan and set it in the pan with your carrots and potatoes. It would still turn out all right. I did that.

So, in closing, it was a very successful new year’s dinner. I hope you enjoyed it. Hopefully you can use these recipes whenever you do a turkey dinner. Blessings to you you and your family this year.

Mmmm, turkey and all the fixings.

Turkey,, stuffing, potatoes, carrots, and turnip all together
