I am going to have to try parsnips now. One of my favorite ways to prepare/roast beets is to scrub and cut them into about 1 inch sized pieces. At the same time, I do this with red skin potatoes and carrots. I place them all on my stone baking sheet after spritzing it with olive oil. I lightly spritz the veggies themselves and sprinkle on salt, pepper, sometimes a little garlic powder and rosemary. I bake them until they brown and ...YUM! I have all of the above in my fridge now so...guess what I am having for supper! LOL
I have never tried beets. Never had any idea how to cook them! We have a garden and my son in law keeps growing parsnips. They look like anemic carrots but taste like a radish. I had just been cutting them into salad like a carrot or radish but there are so many of them, and they are so huge, that most would go to waste. So I roasted them and they were so good they all got eaten! The fun thing about them is that they grow all winter so they are actually ready now, instead of at the end of summer like most things.
Oh no! I've been so busy-I forgot all about it! Can't seem to get motivated to do much cooking (just me & my dog) lately...last weekend we were doing a (late) mutual birthday party for my son & stepdad-I had planned & bought stuff to make several desserts-& ended up buying a beautiful cake! The only thing I made by hand was deviled eggs! How about you -anything new?

Well i knew the quiona wouldnt' have much taste - but the whole thing didn't have much taste! It was bland and hard to chew. I bought millet bread once, at a health food store. My bird really liked it :)
As far as the rest of my quiona, it seems it would be good with cheese . . . but the whole point is not to have to eat cheese for protien. Maybe just douse it with soy sauce!
Ha ha, no, you are right. It is not very tasty at all, but it is a very good source of complete protein, which we need. There are a lot of good recipes out there on the internet so don't get discouraged. My new food this week was millet. (Talk about not very tasty, lol) But it is highly nutritious and I made enough that I could use it in many different dishes/salads etc. These kinds of food just cause us to get a little more creative. Glad you tried something new.
So today I tried a new food - quiona. I decided to try it is in the spark recipe "Quiona and Black Bean Casserole" It wasn't very tasty. Actually it didn't have much taste at all. And kind of hard to eat . . . .
