I've dug out the barbecue to roast them in a cake pan greased with olive oil before, just to get that smokey summery goodness added. A little bit of summer in the middle of winter

I wasn't anticipating a counter-smackdown. You've bested me once yet still want more blood. I'm sure if I look hard there is a lesson in all of this.

btw - the taters and veggies look yummy!

Counter-smackdown it is, if you dare. This time round, we'll enlist the votes of the good folks of Mitchieville, in addition to the Foggy Folk and The Broom. Let's make it a real cook off and the loser must cook the winner a vegetarian dinner.
