We have decided to start a blog to share our recipes and to also keep them in a place we can easily access them. We hope you enjoy them and the little tid bits of our lives that we throw in. Most recipes will be based on primal principles although a few non-primal baked goods may slip in :)

A Walk in the Woods and Roasted Turkey and Mashed Parsnips

SO this is the first time I (Angela) get to post about our dinner :). My posts will probably be a little more wordy and give a run down on what else we have been doing with our lives.

Monday after work we decided to take a nice long walk since it was in the high 70's and a perfect evening for a walk. Not to mention walking is a great exercise and very primal :). We went to Blacklick Woods which is a Columbus Metro Park. Adam talked me into getting a pair of Merrell pace gloves. They are perfect for hiking and working out.

After our walk we headed home for dinner. We made roasted turkey breast with butter under the skin and herds (salt, pepper, rosemary...Angela's favorite spice) and mashed parsnips (see recipe below).

Mashed Parsnips

2 large parsnips
1 cup of broth
1 1/2 cups of water
1 1/4 cups of cream or whole milk
butter, salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

Peel and cut up parsnips like you would a potato. Place in a large pot with water and broth. Boil until tender (about 15-20 minutes). Drain water, save some broth for mashing. Add cream, butter and broth. Mash. Mix in salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg to taste. ENJOY!

Overall it was not a bad Monday :)
