Coat these in cinnamon and sugar and bake. Yum!

Festive Turnip 

1 large turnip and buckets of carrots
A bag of cooking apples peeled, cored and chunked
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
Dash of cinnamon

1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
2 tbsp melted butter

Cook turnip and carrots until tender.  Amounts may vary depending on the gaggle of people you invite. Mash with butter. Slice apples and mix with brown sugar and cinnamon. In a large casserole dish, layer the  turnip/carrots and apples. Combine the topping ingredients and put on top of turnip, carrots and apples. Bake at 325°F for 1 hour.

Having lived in Milano, Italy; Diana and Umberto’s contribution to dinner was Strawberry Tiramisu.  It was a heavenly dessert and you can see why!  I consider this couple to be one of the most well-read and ‘smart’ couples I know.  I found their stories at our feast table in good humour and so amazing!  I am grateful for Diana and Umberto!
