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?

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.
