First of all (not a food related thought), I’m so pissed that we couldn’t watch the Oscars last night. (Canceled cable TV a few weeks ago) I searched everywhere trying to find how to stream it online, but all of the links I found either lead to a dead end or some spam website. Ugh!!
The amount of cooking I did this past weekend was insane; yep, you guessed it… as a result of no cable TV. It’s not that we spend our weekends glued to the couch, but we’ll generally spend some time catching up on our DVR-ed shows and then feel lazy and end up going out to eat or getting take out. I know this whole “no cable TV” thing is good and definitely liberating, I just need to get used to it. A negative was missing the Oscars, but a MAJOR positive was going to hot yoga TWO TIMES this weekend!!
Last night, I made bunless turkey burgers (pretty simple – ground turkey, mixed with chopped onions, minced garlic, a dash of worcestershire sauce, and some sea salt and black pepper. Grill over medium to high heat for about 7 minutes on each side) with parsnip fries. Oh, parsnips, how I love thee! Between parsnips and cauliflower, I’m pretty sure I’m ready to just let go of my relationship with potatoes. I’m not kidding.
- 2 large parsnips
- Olive oil
- Sea salt
- Black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F).
- Scrub and peel parsnips. Cut into “french fry” shaped strips. Arrange on baking sheet in a single layer.
- Drizzle olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper.
- Bake for 20 minutes until nice and crispy.
