Honey Glazed Roasted Vegetables

They are grown locally, incredibly fresh, and I'm surprised there were any left this morning.
I love snacking on raw veggies!
But I wanted to make something with them too. 

A soup? A stir fry? A casserole?

At the market, I also picked up some real good winnie-the-pooh approved honey.
I wanted to use that too! Could all my yummy finds be incorporated into one 
extraordinary dish?
I decided on a simple but incredibly delicious way to prepare roasted vegetables.
This method really keeps the integrity of each vegetable's flavour while drawing out
the sweetness of the summer sun that helped them grow.  
It's all in the perfect glaze.
A little bit of balsamic vinegar, honey, and herbs go a long way.
While I was preparing this mixture, a thunderstorm rolled in and darkened the sky.
Bolts of electric lightening landed over the Ottawa River and my Little One
was full of mischievous energy.  
I wasn't sure if all my natural light was gone
to take photographs of the preparation.  But only 10 minutes 
after the downpour, the sun started to peek through and not long after, 
the sky was clear again.
I was able to snap some photos after all. Look at that honey glaze covering these colourful beauties
and off they go, into the oven for some grilling!
Let's just say we're stuffed.

Time for a nap!
