SHAUNS SPUDS
This is something I made up for Shaun, an awesome kid who unfortunately thinks
he doesn’t like vegetables! To serve 4 -6:
 2 baking potatoes, peeled and cubed
 3 to 4 parsnips, peeled and chopped
 ½ head cauliflower, cut into florets
Place all the cut up vegetables into a good sized sauce pan and cover with cold
water. Salt it lightly, bring to a boil, then turn it down to simmer and cook till
everything is fork tender. Drain in a colander, return to the warm pot, and add:
 approx.. 2 Tb. of butter – more if you want
 ¼ cup ½ and ½, or cream, warmed a bit
Smoosh this all up like you’re making mashed potatoes, which you kind of are,
then serve with salt and pepper to taste. You can also turn this into a greased
casserole dish, cover it with grated cheddar, and bake it at 350 till the cheese
melts. SO good! And your little darlings – or your spouse, or your guests – will
never know they just enjoyed parsnips. Shaun loved this – I think you will too!
