Honey & Thyme Roasted Parsnips

roasted vegetables will always hold a special place in my heart, the same place that my children, mr. handsome, and cheesecake hold.
okay, perhaps not the exact same place, but i love them regardless.
tonight, honey, thyme and parsnips took ownership of my oven and produced a more than delicious side dish that satisfied all of our palettes. 
we are veggie obsessed in this house.  i should probably look into opening up my own farmers market at this rate.... 

Honey & Thyme Roasted Parsnips

2 lbs parsnips, peeled, ends trimmed, and quartered lengthwise
3 Tbsp olive oil
