Parsnips and pears!

First parsnips of the season in the veggie box this week! I love parsnips. A definite sign winter is coming though.

I've not done so well on the blog posts but have been trying some new recipes. Last week I was inspired by watching Masterchef: the Professionals to try and create something with a few more interesting flavours. I had a recipe I'd cut out of the paper last year for a warm salad of beetroots roasted with olive oil, garlic and rosemary (thyme too but didn't have any), served with pear and blue cheese, drizzled with honey. That was gorgeous. My favourite salad ingredients right now are pears - salad leaves, pears, walnuts and blue cheese is a quick and easy one. And it goes well with a dressing made of wholegrain mustard, olive oil and cider vinegar.

But tonight it's got to be roast parsnips!
