Deliciously caramelized vegetables bathed in a cider and cinnamon glaze are the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
I don’t think I have ever been a vegetable hater. At least I can’t remember having a strong dislike for vegetables other than green bean when I was a child. When I first met my husband, he was so-so about vegetables. Then I gave him some roasted vegetables and his whole outlook changed. They were a little sweet, a little crunchy and so delicious. After that he never complained about eating his vegetables again.
Roasted vegetables are always an integral part of our Christmas dinner. It’s another one of those traditions we bought back from living in England. Prime rib, Yorkshire pudding and roasted vegetables, that is what I think about for Christmas. Christmas music, of course, is high on my list of Christmas traditions. We start listening to Christmas music on Thanksgiving. From then on, I emerge myself in Christmas music. It helps me get through my long to-do list. It’s hard to be in a bad mood when Bing Crosby is singing “White Christmas” in the background. If Bing cannot get me through, there is always Nat King Cole singing “The Christmas Song” or Vanessa Williams singing “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”.
I just downloaded Kelly Clarkson’s new Christmas Album or do we still call it a CD? My daughter doesn’t even know what either of those are. She still doesn’t understand why I cannot rewind a song we hear on the radio like I can if we are listening to a song on my phone. It’s so funny, she gets so upset and keeps asking why. I’d really like to know why too. I want a radio I can stop and rewind. There could already be a radio that does it and I just don’t know about it. In the meantime, I’ll be happy to listen to Christmas music any time I can.
