They are so cool!  I have been frying a lot of parsnip dices, and the smell is wonderful.  It is like the smell of dandelion milk and/or milk thistle. Parsnips are supposed to be a substitute for potatoes, which I think is great, but even though I love them grilled - it seems like they have too much sugar.

Don't ever date me because I drop anybody who has too much sugar. Love is not sugar.

Parsnips are awesome. Jamie Oliver does a recipe where you grate them and fry them up with bacon, rosemary and garlic. Serve with pasta and loads of parmesan. : )

That does sound really great! I have everything except the rosemary. I might wing it a little.

I have three things that look like roundish eggplants. Does she have any recipes for eggplants? I probably must cook them tonight.

Lost in translation

Eggplants - I had to Google what that is. We call them auborgines here in England.
Sorry, I don't what you can do with those.
Jamie Oliver is a man by the way. He's the archetypal British lad cook. : )

Re: Lost in translation

Thanks. I don't know why they are called eggplants, because they are not at all like eggs. I now do seem to remember that the Brits call them something different. "Auborigines," is a weird and curious term. Maybe it goes back to the days of Captain Bligh versus the natives. He was on an eggplant mission - http://madman101.livejournal.com/1961944.html

Well, i think maybe these were not eggplants/etc., but some kind of purple squash. I did cook them up and may post about food soon. Now, I have to rest my sun-washed eyes.
