Side Dish - Savory Roasted Root Vegetables

Beets were my sworn enemy until I tried them like this, it's a great way to use root vegetables. I think the beets add a beautiful red color to the dish, but if it bothers you to serve pinkish vegetables, substitute parsnips, rutabaga, or any similar vegetable; be creative!

Cheese - Joannes Super Hero Sandwich

Indio Booty
Much like the N'awlins muffuletta, this is a large sandwich layered in a round loaf of crusty bread. You can be flexible and vary the cold cuts that you use according to personal preference! Must be done a day ahead, which makes for an easy serve.

Appetizers And Snacks - Black Bean Hummus

This hummus comes with raves attached to it. Everything goes into the food processor and is swooshed into a fabulous consistency. Try it with some toasted pita bread.

Soups Stews And Chili - Sausage Barley Soup

This is a nice soup recipe with a lot of texture and flavor. It is a welcome change for those weeks when there doesn't seem to be a lot of variety... and all 3 of my kids even loved it. This can also be cooked in a pan on the stove until the barley and carrot are tender, but I prefer the slow cooker method. The flavors seem to blend better.
