I showed you what I made my sister for dinner the other day and this is the other component. When she is breastfeeding there is no time for the foods we normally love in her diet. No greens, beans or noodle swaps, just straight meat and potatoes for my nieces when they are babies and growing! I decided to try and roast some veggies and not just make mashed potatoes. I was having a particularly (I say was, still am) busy week at work and decided to take a break and grocery shop at the fancy Rouses by my office. I could take a quick break, walk, get my groceries and be happy.
Well my bags split on the way back. Right at the exit to the big fancy building across the street. I looked ridiculous scooting all the elements of the meal out of the way of a stockbroker's Yukon sneaking out early. So for the rest of the day I had turnips in my purse!
In any event, this was so yummy! The spices were just right and the veggies had so much flavor due to the roasting. No one turned up their noses at the turnips! Although, it was four adults having this with pretty unpicky palates. Make this yummy side with roasted chicken, pan seared pork chops, flank steak, or with fish like I did. You will not regret it. Full recipe to follow the montage.

|The veggies and spices, so simple!|
|Parsnips are like albino carrots, but sweeter. They are so good roasted!|
