I have never fixed parsnips, but the kids tried them recently in a soup at a friend's house and liked them.....so I'm going to give it a try.

Parsnips and rutabagas are enormously popular winter vegetables around here. Stores always has piles of them. People usually mix them with other root vegetables (such as carrots, potatoes, and onions), coat them with olive oil, salt and pepper then bake the mixture in the oven. It's a very common side dish.

I love parsnips and they do not have them here. I have asked everywhere. You can mash them together with potatoes, among other possibilities.

This was supposed to be to Puss's post, as she was the one who mentioned wraps, lol.

I don't think that was me. LOL

Whole milk: 2%, 1%, skim, or? whole and 2%

Rice: white or brown, or...? white and brown

Bread: white, wheat, or...? whole wheat, sour dough, french

Pasta: white flour, egg, or whole grain, or? seminola, egg, spinach, whole grain depending on use

Breakfast cereal: fruit loops or grapenuts, or? oatmeal, Cherrios, Kix, Frosted Mini Wheats, Grapenuts, etc. As long as it doesn't contain marshmallows. Try to stay away from high fruitose corn syrup. Funny thing that's usually the generic bagged cereal.

Meat: beef, chicken, pork, lamb or? No lamb; way too expensive for 9 people even at Easter

Fish: tuna, sword, salmon, cod, or...? Whatever is on sale, in season and wild caught

Fruit? Always apples and bananas. Otherwise whatever is in season and on sale and local (which is just about everything except for bananas and some apples

Vegetable? Not brussel sprouts (except for Adam) or egg plant. Although Joy is looking for an egg plant recipe to try.

Guilty pleasure? cheddar cheese and sour cream potato chips and Coke.

One of my favorite eggplant dishes is caponata. Here is a recipe that works beautifully ever time and is not very complicated:

Mmmmm, I love caponata!

I made this not too long ago and loved it! http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=459517

Earlier this week I bought a Bulgarian eggplant garlic spread at Trader Joe's that was delicious! I used it on a panini sandwich.

Dh never used to like eggplant until I started making it for him and now he likes it. I also make a sort of ratatouille with it too.

Mmmmmm, I'm getting hungry!
