The first thing I make is a beef stew, after Labor Day, and then I think of biscuits and homemade pies, and then the root vegetables. We enjoy a small roasted turkey, usually the Hotel Style, which cooks quickly and is perfect for just the two of us, for several meals.
I love organic vegetables, especially carrots, which are so sweet and orange! Now I combine carrots, potatoes and squash or onions in the oven with olive oil, salt and pepper. The parsnips I boil gently and add later.
