I’ve been enjoying turnips lately. I’ve made them into fries, added them to soup, and even a salad. Since turnips are a good alternative to potatoes, I decided to try mashing them. And I included a new-to-me vegetable in the recipe, because…why not? Everyone say hello to…

I hope everyone had a wonderful Turkey Day! Mine was spent in Colorado with family, and it was great.

I was looking for a protein-rich dinner idea the other night, and my eyeballs fell upon a big bag of shrimp in my freezer. Shrimp are a great source of lean protein, and I love them, and they cook super quickly. Then a new question arose: what would I eat with my shrimp?
