Veggie french fry platter

Bailey, the cat, and Nika, the 100-pound malamute, get their beauty sleep side by side.
 Happy New Year from me and the fur kids! We'll be all cozy snoozing together long before midnight tonight.
Veggie french fries, including delicata squash, golden beet and carrot
 Welcome the New Year with a healthy platter of veggie french fries.
 Here's what you need for 1 serving:

1 small delicata squash, peeled and seeded
1 zucchini
1 golden beet
1/2 yellow onion
1 medium carrot, peeled
1 avocado
1 steamed broccoli crown, broken into florets
juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper
olive oil
2 handfuls mixed greens
 Here's what you do:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside and prep your veggies. Peel and seed 1 small delicata squash. Slice squash into french fries. Repeat with zucchini and carrot. Scrub your beet and slice into rounds. Slice 1/4 onion.

Spread all of these veggies onto your baking sheets. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss with your hands to distribute. Place baking sheets in the oven. Roast veggies for about 20-30 minutes. Remove veggies as they get crispy.
While veggies are roasting, make your guacamole. Into your food processor, put broccoli you steamed earlier, avocado meat, other 1/4 onion, lime juice and salt and pepper. Process until guac is thick but creamy.

Put greens on a plate. Arrange fries all over the top and ladle on a generous portion of guac.

Enjoy this New Year's meal knowing you're starting the new year with a healthy meal.

Misha gets all cozy to welcome in the New Year!
The fur kids keep telling me they would love to hear how cute you all think they are. I promise it won't go to their heads.
