Q: For dinner this past Christmas, I had pre-chopped all of the vegetables before finding out that several guests wouldn't be coming. I threw the extra veggies in the freezer, hoping that I would figure something out in the future.
So, it's the future. I have parsnips, white sweet potatoes, and par-boiled potatoes sitting in my freezer. Can I do anything with these?

Editor: Ashley, I'm thinking soups and casseroles! Both of these dishes would welcome some starchy roots and would be forgiving if the vegetables lost some freshness during their time in the freezer.
