As I write this post on Veterans Day, I wanted to take time out to thank all of those who have served or are serving our country. I thank you for your service!
Are you hosting? Do you have a plan? We host Thanksgiving dinner every year, but thankfully, my husband likes to prepare most things. I do one dish that is called Veggie Mash in our house, a recipe that my mother-in-law always made before we started hosting.
I think it is a traditional English dish, as my in-laws are British, and it is basically exactly as it sounds. I will post an actual recipe very soon, but in the mean time, I will give the most basic instructions for it down below.
Using root vegetables such as carrots, parsnip, turnips or rutabegas, along with a large butternut squash and some onion all chopped up well into 1/2-1″ size or so, boil all together until root veggies and squash are soft. Drain, mash with a potato masher, add some salt, pepper, thyme and butter, and walla!
You can mash it smooth or leave it a little lumpy, it’s totally up to you! I personally like to leave it a little bit lumpy. This recipe uses up alot of things in my vegetable storage from the garden too! And so yummy! What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish?
For our three weeks of Thanksgiving that we are doing on the Farm Fresh Tuesday’s blog hop, it was only fitting to choose my friend Kathi’s post featuring recipes for a complete Thanksgiving meal. I hope you enjoy it and find at least one new recipe to try!
