During the holiday season, people eat. (At least I know I do!) They gather around the kitchen and bake together, stuff turkey together, whip up potatoes and pies–or any wonderful mix of dishes that bring comfort and cheer. And this time of year, some of my favorite vegetables are in season and ready for harvest. At least in Florida.
Compost sweet potatoes make for the most delectable side dish. Even better when topped with marshmallows!
Brussels sprouts and bacon add intense flavor to any turkey meal.
My husband prefers corn with his turkey. Why not spice it up and roast it with those last jalapeno peppers from the garden? There’s one good thing about warm weather in December. Tomatoes and peppers enjoy a prolonged harvest season!
Speaking of pumpkins… I miss my little wee-one!
