Ok - so yesterday, I found the parsnips that should have been cooked on Christmas Day!
I searched high and low on Christmas Day for these blinking things. The family even helped, but then assumed that Mum was "losing it"! They even suggested I hadn't actually bought them. But I knew I had, I just couldn't find them. Of course they were "hidden" in plain sight - second tray of the vegetable rack. They look a bit scabby now - but they'll make a great pot of soup!
Don't know about you, but I always, for some reason, miss something out when I've a big meal to cook. Ah well, there was so much food, I don't think anyone really missed them.
