Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving!

We celebrated Thanksgiving this evening with two kinds of protein, three kinds of starch, and cranberry sauce. We had turkey, sweet mashed squash, roast potatoes, and roasted parsnips, with chopped cooked chestnuts, cranberry sauce, and gravy. It wasn't the most coherent or colorful of Thanksgiving meals, but it made me happy. (I know: parnips are interlopers. But they're good.) There's pie for dessert, but I think we'll be eating it another day.

I have always felt that parsnips do not get proper respect.

Parsnips make decent fries... beyond that, they just aren't particularly exciting.
