Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, onions and apples show up in most of our markets right now. If you roast them all together until they are deliciously caramelized, maybe add a drained can of your favorite beans and eat them with some whole-grain bread, you have a complete protein from the beans and bread, and a sound collection of nutrients from the vegetables. The best part is that the leftovers freeze well. A SUPPER ROAST OF SWEET POTATO, BRUSSELS SPROUTS AND APPLES Serves 4 as a main dish.

Shannon Donley of Shepherdstown, W.Va., always roasts the Gospel Fest hog. Donley puts the cleaned hog belly down in a modified propane tank with about 65 pounds of charcoal. Donley started roasting this year's Gospel Fest hog, which was about 260 pounds when it was alive, on Friday about 11 p.m. The meat was done on Saturday about noon, he said. Donley doesn't turn the hog, and he makes sure it stays in a temperature range between 225 and 270 degrees, he said. It takes Donley about 45 minutes to pull all of the meat off the hog when it's done roasting, he said.

Editor's note: Because Herald-Mail columnist Tim Rowland typically roasts politicians in his newspaper column, it seemed only fair he write a commentary about Thursday night's roast of former Hagerstown mayor Steve Sager. Some months ago, Steve Sager and I were having a perfectly civil discussion over coffee in a downtown deli. Cathy Ashley-Cotleur happened through the door, saw us talking and did one of the more impressive double takes you're ever likely to see. Didn't say anything though.

Eileen Rook was on the hunt for a good bargain Monday afternoon, but she chose to pass on one unique item offered for sale - a soap dispenser shaped and painted like a toucan. Rook of Quincy did order scarves during the community yard sale offered as part of the Quincy Ox Roast. A few antiques, including a comb case, caught her eye. “It think it's a good time. There are a lot of people and different things,” said Rook, who has shopped at the yard sale for several years.

While Lisa Price's roast beef dinner still was piping hot, she headed to the condiment table and seasoned it to perfection. Her $5.75 hot beef dinner was topped with gravy and french fries.
