“Now remember kids, eat your cupcakes and doughnuts with extra sprinkles so you will grow up to be nice and strong.”

Isn’t this every kid’s dream to hear their parents say?

Growing up, I’m pretty sure my parents said that exact statement, but apparently it must have been on opposite day. Can we bring back opposite day? Even as an adult, I would like to have been Cameron Diaz in the movie, “Sweetest Thing” where she gets delivered a gigantic brownie sundae in bed and her boyfriend had all the calories sucked out. Can we make that a reality?

Sadly, I feel as though we are always stuck on the opposite of opposite day.

So to fix or better yet, balance out this equation, I’ve created a tart filled with delicious, roasted seasonal veggies. No more blending veggies and hiding them in taters. No more making your kids sit at the dinner table until they’ve cleaned their plates. No more pretending that steamed lima beans are a good idea.

If you want to have your cake and eat it too, whip up this tart, for I know pronounce it Opposite Day.
