It is lovely having a big casserole of delicious cooked vegetables to enjoy! I have had these for my lunch a couple days this week, along with a slice of homemade bread, thick with butter.....
Personally when I am hungry between meals, I prefer to eat foods of substance instead of traditional snacking foods. That idea is these vegetables. One can never eat too many vegetables.....
Feel free to experiment with the herbs or leave them out completely so that you may season the vegetable fresh each time you enjoy them. Leftovers won't be a problem, these vegetables are perfect to tuck into an omelette or make into a delicious vegetable hash. How do you use up leftover vegetables in hour kitchen?

Country French Vegetables
adapted from: Fix it and Forget it, new cookbook
Use a 5 quart slow cooker
3 T olive oil, divided
3 potatoes, unpeeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
3 carrots, unpeeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
2 parsnips, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 turnip or rutabaga, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
2 onions, cut in wedges
1/2 pound mushrooms, cut in half
1 T minced fresh or 1/2 t dried rosemary
1 T minced fresh or 1/2 t dried thyme
1/3 c fresh parsley or chopped celery leaves
3/4 t salt (next time I shall use garlic salt)
1/4 t fresh ground black pepper
Lightly coat the inside of the slow cooker with 1 T of the oil. Combine all remaining ingredients, place in cooker. Cover and cook on low for 3-6 hours (we cooked for 4 hours and it was just about right) depending upon how tender you want the vegetables.
