Ridiculously Practical Meal: Honey-Roasted Veggies & Gnocchi

Share it Please
Picture courtesy of A Beautiful Mess.
Today's meal looks both delicious and beautiful! Who wouldn't want to eat this after seeing all the pretty colors? Plus it has gnocchi. One of my very favorite foods. You'll find the Honey-Roasted Veggies & Gnocchi over at A Beautiful Mess. I plan to make this over the weekend and see if the in-laws would like to come over and try some. It's just one of those impressive looking dishes, even though it only takes a little bit of work. The cook time is a little longer than I normally post, but don't worry, the actual amount of effort is no more than my normal meals. Personally I don't think it counts as work if you get to set it and forget it. I hope you enjoy the meal!

Oh and one more thing! Don't forget to check out my article on Rock & Sling!

The Faces of the Church
By Lauren Michelle Major
 
Have you ever walked in church alone? Have you paced the aisles of pews in the dark, walked the back hallways, seen the boiler room with its hulking monster and blinking eyes? Have you sat alone with no sound but the gentle hum of the AC and searched for meaning in the colored glass? Have you been to the choir room, the sacristy, the chapel, the sanctuary, the narthex, the welcome center, searching for any last human relics before you turned out the lights and locked the doors?

Have you ever thought of church, the community you belong to, as a business? I am in the business of people. Every day, Monday through Friday, I walk into church and open the door, raise the shade, turn on the phones, and ask what I can do for you. It doesn’t matter if you are a member, if you’ve made a donation, or if I will only ever speak to you once. For the time that we are speaking my job is to be there for you.

  20. It would be a nice change to the usual food I eat by having gnocchi. With honey-roasted veggies as well sounds even more delish ;)
