Balsamic Roasted Parsnips

hubs thought they were chips…they’re not

Happy All Saints’ Day!

I love November. Not only is it the month of my mother’s birthday, it’s also my wedding anniversary – so basically I get to celebrate the two people I love most in the world!

onion and parsnip – from such humble beginnings comes a great side dish

And, if that weren’t reason enough to love this month, we’re also approaching the slow slide into Christmas (hands up if you’re already hearing Christmas tunes on the radio).

We’re staying home this year, which means I’m the designated cook.

pouring in the olive oil

I’m thinking of stuffing a chicken (turkey gives me the heaves) and throwing together a few yummy vegetable side dishes….such as this one.

It’s perfect when you just want to throw something easy into the oven and concentrate on more important things (like the merits of chestnut stuffing versus almond-based stuffing…these questions matter people!).


they go fast, trust me
