This week’s share has great recipe potential

Here are my casual Friday thoughts on this week’s share. The small turnips we received this week look delicious and I love fall root vegetables cooked slowly with lovely spices. See recipe ideas below.  We also received fennel and there are tons of fennel recipes on the blog.  I have linked one below.  The pear is staring at me from my butcher block and tempting me for a recipe.  Luckily the recipe of the day from Andrew Weil was for pears.  It is listed below too.  I have not received any recipes or tips for a few weeks.  Send me your recipes or even food items where you need more blog information.

TURNIPS
About.com has storage tips and several recipe links.  One is to a creamy soup that sounds good for our new fall weather.

Epicurious has many recipes, some very fancy, for all types of vegetables.  I must be in a mashed potato mood because this is the one that I selected.  Maybe I will mix the fennel, turnips and potatoes to create a new recipe this weekend.
