Parsnips Anyone?

In an effort to put something different on our plates at dinner time, my husband decided to try to make some Parsnip Fries.  I had never had a parsnip before and I admit that I was a little skeptical to try them.  But alas, I was pleasantly surprised!  They are pretty darn yummy... so I thought I'd share our little recipe with you.  It's pretty loosey-goosey... you just kind of eyeball it.  Easy enough!

  • Preheat oven to 425*
  • 2-3 Parsnips, cut into shoe string fries (they are a little tough to cut... so don't cut yourself in the process!)
  • Put the parsnip fries into a gallon storage/zipper bag
  • Add enough olive oil to coat the fries
  • Shake in a bit of salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and parmesan cheese (the amount you use is totally up to you!)
  • Seal the bag and give it some crazy shakes to coat all of the fries
  • Spread out on a greased baking sheet (not sure if you have to grease the pan, we just sprayed it with cooking spray just to be sure!)
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes!


**On a side note... please keep Cory's dad, Gene, in your prayers.  He goes in for a scan tomorrow... he's been having some issues and the doctors moved his scan up a week.  We are praying the cancer hasn't spread.**

We're Still Here...

... there's just a lot less free time for things like blogging!

El turned 2!!

Dinah turned 1 Month!

We did some pizza making...

Some playing...

And we found out that Eloise is allergic to peanuts.
Fun fun.

Life is busy...
but it's good!
