Tonight there was actually a 5 minute wait to get a lottery ticket for tonight - even my partner, who can't stand people who buy lottery tickets, bought a ticket tonight. $50million is just too enticing to pass up the chance to win it. Goodluck to everyone who bought a ticket.
Some Facts About PARSNIP:
- is a root vegetable related to the carrot.
- In Roman times parsnips were believed to be an aphrodisiac.
- The parsnip is richer in vitamins and minerals than its close relative the carrot
Cooking Time: 40mins. 20mins for cooking vegeatble and chicken and 20mins to cook in oven.
Total Time: 1hr 20mins (includes cooling time for vegetables). Takes a long time all up, but probably only around 30mins of actual active cooking.
Taste: 3.5/5. Not bad, the overall dish didn't have a lot of flavour, probably tasted the pastry the most as I seasoned it before baking. I only used two chicken thighs and3/4 of the amount of liquid, but I kept the other amounts the same. Made enough for 3. Parsnip wasn't very strong in flavour, quite sweet.
Would I make it again: No. I prefer the Chicken Tarragon Pie, which was tastier and easier to make.
