Hello All!

I hope everyone had a wonderful relaxing holiday with family and friends and that that peace continues into the new year.

Sure we're in the middle of a pretty harsh cold snap but don't let that get you down...Heron Pond is here to brighten your day with fresh salad greens in this week share! Nothing like a little freshness and a little pop of vibrant green to warm you like a summers day! After all that heavy holiday food I'm sure everyone's excited to enjoy a nice light salad. Or perhaps you want to warm it up with some grains and roasted roots. Either way what a wonderful treat in the heart of winter! Here is this weeks share, and don't forgot to try out some new recipes noted at the bottom. Enjoy!

First up this recipe combines two of my favorite things sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts such beautiful colors and taste when paired together! Roasted at a nice high heat, brings a sweet charred bit and when tossed in a little vinegar a subtle tangy finish! I just made a batch of homemade apple cider vinegar (it's so easy, email me if you want the details) so I choose to use that instead of the red wine vinegar but both would be quite nice I'm sure.

Next is just a helpful hint to get through your roots which may be adding up! Dice up carrots, beets, turnips, kohlrabi and even radish. Toss in olive oil salt and pepper and minced garlic, as it's always a staple, Roast in a pyrex in the oven at 375 to 400° until soft. It's great to have roasted veggies on hand; remember when you go to reheat these for a dish you can add more spices and flavors at that time.  Roasted roots are a great comfort food in this chilly weather!! Perfect to add to a rice bowl or top them over fresh greens. Or simply have them as a side by themselves.
