Delicious Snack - Parsnips

Things are busy here as they are busy everywhere I am sure. It is pretty amazing how freezing temps makes you productive in ways you could not imagine. I found a solution to a sensory type blanket I have been working on for my godson. I am embarrassed that it has taken me as long as it has, but believe it or not, I had an epiphany and will now be able to complete it, hopefully by the weekend.

This past Sunday I was lucky enough to meet a dear friend at our favorite tea house which was wonderful.

Now it is Monday and routine is back.

Let's talk food shall we?
I had some parsnips hanging out in my bin and wanted to do something with them other than a soup or gratin or cook them with maple syrup. Deborah Madison, I am looking at you. See: Breakfast Parsnips

I did a search and came across Baked Parsnip Fries with Rosemary on Bon Appetit.


They were not necessarily crispy and I did not care. They were damn delicious and I am looking forward to making them again. They would certainly make a nice side dish and I bet there are quite a few homemade dips that would go nice as well. So go ahead, have fun with them.

Okay my dears it is time for me to work a bit on my novel, then shower.



  1. OMG, Miss Fifi,
    We LOVE parsnip fries! This recipe sounds even better---Can't wait to try them! I don't think parsnip fries are ever crispy unless deep fat fried. We have always baked our fries, as we try to eat 'healthy', and I think they are divine just as they are out of the oven!

  2. In Wales they are called parsnip chips

    1. And I would eat them anyway anyone makes them :)

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

A Good Book Here, A Good Book There

Took a hiatus. Yeah, I am sure you all noticed. Been trying to get things moving along and with that I had to slack and so I slacked on the blog. Now allow me to share our little artificial tree that our son and his grandma decorated with glee.

In the last two months or so, I no longer bring my computer upstairs. Instead I have started to read at night. While this may not sound like any big deal, it is a little for me. I love to read, but due to school, home, obligations, and writing a novel, I somehow pushed reading an actual book to the side.  Like a lot of folks I got more caught up in the rabbit hole of the internet. Now, I do love getting sucked down various rabbit holes, but I also felt that I needed to actually unplug.
Allow me to sidebar a bit here.

I had been struggling with my book for a very long time. In the last 6 months or so it got worse. I had lost the true nature of the story and could no longer hear the character voice. I am not the first writer this has happened to…
