Ideas for all those turnips!

I don't think I've ever eaten a turnip in my entire life.  

Looks like that is going to change soooooon.

I did a little research this morning on turnips and found a few recipes I think I'll give a try.  I may not have enough turnips for all of the recipes, but one or two of them for sure!

I hope this is helpful to a few of you like me who have no recipes in your recipe binder/box for turnips.

I actually still have two butternut squashes in my vegetable basket on my counter from over a month ago.  I love making soup . . . maybe I'll give this one a try!

I am pretty sure my husband and I will love these.  We love to make sweet potato fries, parsnip fries, carrot fries, and potato fries just like this.  I am sure these will also be great!

My mom use to make potato patties for breakfast when we were growing up.  I think I just might have to make breakfast for dinner one of these nights!

My husband LOVES Indian food.  And I just found out one of my very best friends is moving home from England in a few weeks is loves and makes amazing Indian food.  I think I'll give this a trial run before she gets home so she has another Indian dish to add to her collection!  Or maybe I'll just have to make it for her when she gets home . . . I did read turnips stay fresh for up to 2 months if stored in a cool, dark place.

Let us know what you do with your turnips.  We'd love to hear

What a great blog!! I am so glad that I stubled across it - I will for sure be checking your blog frequently. I had the same reaction when I got the turnips the other day. Thanks for your ideas - I think I will make the turnip and squash soup!

Those turnip fries are pretty good! I think I'll try getting my 4yo to eat them! Thanks for sharing the recipes!
