Roasted veggies

On one lovely Sunday afternoon a bunch of girlfriends and I convened to pretty much eat our faces off.  Simple veggies oven roasted is a perfect combination with some toasted bread and a bit of cream cheese.  And just look at it, isn’t it gorgeous?  I love the robust colors in this photo!
