Lentil Soup with Balsamic Roasted Winter Vegetables

Lentil Soup with Balsamic Roasted Winter Vegetables - Chew Nibble Nosh

This, my friends, is EXACTLY the recipe we need for today.  This morning, at 5:00 AM, my phone pinged, telling me that my kids officially had their first two-hour weather delay of the season.  We only got a couple of inches of snow overnight, but it came down at just the right time to throw a kink in the bus schedule.  The kids were thrilled, I was excited to set my alarm for a little bit later, all was well with the world.  My husband texted me a while later and suggested I stay at home, if possible, because the road conditions stunk. OK, sounds good to me.

I know that Thanksgiving dinner is a massive meal, and we don’t want to fill up too early, but you’ve still got to have something with your morning coffee, right?

These buttery, fall speckled little scones are the perfect way to start your holiday, and they can be made ahead or a lot of the prep can be done the night before, saving you some time in the morning.

To begin, I peeled and diced up two medium-sized sweet potatoes.
