Good morning!  How are you feeling today?  Did you stay up late watching football?  Drink too much?  Eat too much?  I didn’t.  I went to bed at my usual, reasonable hour because, well, I like sleep.  I like it way more than I like football!  So, I hope you’re not in a food coma because I have food for you today!!!  I have a quick and delicious side dish for you, Mashed Parsnips.

Take a break from mashed potatoes and try mashed parsnips instead.  I love parsnips, so I’m always looking for ways to prepare them and feed them to my family.  I want them to love parsnips, too.  So far it’s working on at least one child………..

Mashed Parsnips #recipe #sidedish #veggiesBefore I even took a bite of mashed parsnips and a bite of meatloaf Pumpkin had pretty much eaten her entire scoop of parsnips!  I can’t blame her.  They are deliciously sweet.  They were a perfect compliment to the meatloaf and a nice change from mashed potatoes. 

If you’re looking to add a little variety to your life try these mashed parsnips!!!
