Wow, lots of wonderful menu ideas, Donna! Buttered turnips from the freezer...can't seem to find them here in AZ, whole or frozen! Sure do love them! I also like parsnips, and can't seem to find them here either.
New to your blog from Menu Plan Monday. Thanks for stopping by my blog with your kind comment.
