simple


I have to admit I had never eaten a parsnip. It was not a veggie any one in my family had ever cooked. And I would not have cooked it now if Ulrike had not chosen it for this week’s veggie.

I would have to describe it as “not a carrot”. It looks like a white carrot. The taste is similar to a carrot but with a little bite.

I looked at a lot of recipes. Most of the recipes were for mashing, roasted, or in a soup.

i decided to go simple. Roasted. With butter and garlic.

I have to admit they weren’t bad but not something I would use again. I’d just as soon have carrots.

Here is the recipe

Kayte, Ulrike, and Peggy all made parsnip dishes. Go check them out.

If you want to join us just let one of us know. We’ll give you the schedule through the end of the year.

This week our veggie is Sweet Potatoes. aka yams. This was Peggy‘s choice and it is a good one. Especially since fall has now arrived and these are often on the table at various celebrations. Most of the time I either make these into Sweet Potato Fries. Or a casserole. Or stew them down in my MIL’s recipe (which is delicious). But I wanted to do something a little different. So what else is new?

I give you Sweet Potato Gnocchi! Delightful little bites. I wanted to serve them with brown butter and sage but I was out of Sage so I sprinkled them with Cinnamon Sugar instead. YES!! And I got to use my little gnocchi board which has been lonesome sitting on my shelf. It is fun to use.

Recipe is HERE.

Definitely a keeper.

Yesterday was Spinach Salad Day. Needless to say, I didn’t quite make it. So what else is new, right?

This was Peggy’s ingredient pick. And since I hadn’t made this salad in a while I decided to make it super simple and go with what I know.

Ingredients: baby spinach, boiled eggs, raw mushrooms, bacon, shredded cheddar, and ranch dressing.

That’s it! Just cut up the eggs, shrooms, and bacon. Toss it with the spinach and cheese and add in some dressing.

See, I told you. SUPER simple.

With the store bottled ranch it is not KETO. But if you make your own….So Good!

More salads?
