1½ cup olive oil
1 pound or 3 cups rutabaga, peeled and cut into 1-inch bits
3 cup about 2 turnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
½ pound carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch slices
½ pound parsnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup onion, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch wedges
2 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 cup water
2 cup honey
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss the first seven ingredients with salt and pepper to taste in a large roasting pan. Pour water over the vegetables, cover with foil, and cook for 40 minutes until just tender. Whisk together the honey and vinegar, uncover the vegetables, and stir in the honey and vinegar. Cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes until slightly golden. Sprinkle with parsley; serve.

1/3 cup brandy or apple cider
1/2 cup raisins, golden and regular
1/4 cup crystallized ginger
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup water
¾ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoon butter
6 item Bosc pears, peeled, cut in half and cored
Place first five ingredients in a small saucepot. Heat until warmed through, swirl the pan to coat the dried fruit, and set aside to soak. Combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Using your fingers, crumble the butter into the mixture until it forms a slightly moist crumb topping. Fill each pear with some of the mixture. Place the pears in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish; pour the brandy mixture evenly over the pears. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 375°F. Uncover, gently flip the pears upside down—it's fine if some of the mixture falls out of the center. Bake for an additional 30 minutes. Transfer the pears to serving bowls; spoon the juices and fruit over. For added flair, serve each pear with a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt or sprinkle ¾ cup of chopped walnuts on top.

No wonder the divorce rate is so high! Is it possible with all the negativity that is being forced fed to us that are minds are unknowing beginning programmed to expect and accept failure?
Whew! After that being said Spicy Wifey would like to shout out and celebrate some HAPPY COUPLES! Some couples that we see making a good go of it! Shout out to all the Spicy Wifey's and Spousy's making it work and having a good time doing it.
