New Day- New Food!
Huge sigh of relief here about last night's "ball drop". Enough said about that, I'm exhausted from dwelling on it.
On to more FOOD! Thanks everyone for the tips on rutabagas and turnips, they were a success! I made a crock pot style root veggie stew, but put just enough meat in there to calm the family down :)
Potatoes, Turnips, Rutabagas, Carrots, Onions, Celery - YUM!
Lesson learned - look for small turnips! The ones they had at the commissary were huge and very woody, but the few small ones were very good and I snacked on them raw as I was preparing dinner. The rutabagas added nice color. At first I was skeptical when I saw they resembled sweet potatoes (I do NOT like sweet potatoes, unless made into fries with sea salt, and even then...) but they didn't taste like sweet potatoes. The kids tried them all, since it's hard to tell them apart after cooking, LOL!
I am now hopping on the rutabaga & turnip train! I would have added parsnip too but there weren't any at the store. What's next? Conquering rhubarb?!
