Lovely Roasted Vegetables
Politely I poked my fork into one of the sweet potatoes, one of the few of these things that I trusted. Not bad, actually rather good, and so I kept on going. I was astonished at how good these unpromising things tasted! At the end of the meal I found myself popping a while garlic pod into my mouth and chasing it with a few capers and that slightly burnt curling onion sliver. Even the rosemary was perfect, the parsnips sublime. Everything was perfectly roasted and brushed with a lemon, olive oil, and caper vinaigrette-- not harsh or dry or bitter at all! I drew the last few things on my plate, and as I drew I popped them into my mouth. The garlic half looked like a lotus pod.
