Quick Roasted Vegetables

lemon thyme roasted veggies2

The month of February and March was like the Entertaining Marathon at my house with one shindig after the other.  I recently shared the full menu recipe by recipe for the Mary Lillie Memory Club Luncheon and then after that it was a little party reprise with a pretty bridal shower for a sweet co-worker and then onto baby land for a fellow soon-to-be mommy with a navy and aqua inspired baby shower.  The group was small and it was an early afternoon shower, so being in charge of the food, I decided to keep the fare light and simple.  I will share some of the other recipes a little later, but in the meantime, this quick roasted vegetable recipe was a hit definitely worth sharing first.  It is also a great recipe for an Easter brunch and pretty darn festive with the carrots and asparagus for your Peter Rabbit inspired table.

Most of the prep work could be done ahead of time and you can even get your veggies pre-seasoned in separate bags and ready for a quick roast after church.
