Ok Ladies... I've been trying to shake up the menu at home lately.  I am making an effort to buy different veggies and making different recipes. In the past weeks I've done swiss chard, spaguetti squash, fresh brussel sprouts...

One of the veggies I picked up is turnips .. I've had turnips before ; raw, pickled lebanese style, pureed and cooked as a mixed vegetable in a tunisian couscous. 

But I was hoping you could give me your recipe for a way to have turnip (kid friendly hopefully) My husband has never had them and I'm pretty sure I"ve never cooked them for my daughter either.

??

Have you tried parsnips? We roast those often, really good.

I slice them thin. Slice onions. Cook them together in a cast iron skillet with bacon fat, salt, and pepper until browned. :)

I like them raw diced up in salad.  No one has ever really even noticed them!  They just add a nice crunch to the salad and a light flavor.

 Yes I like parsnip !  Actually I've bought them recently as part of my "shake up the menu" deal - I had parsnip before,  my husband had not.  I made it part of a blade roast with root vegetables.  The parsnip did not go over well with DD, and DH was "meh" with them.  :(

How is the spaghetti squash? I've seen it done before on cooking shows but I've been leery to try it.

Turnips? I have no idea. :)
