Bad neighbor, good neighbor.
The neighbors' recently-"moved" trees, owing to a wind storm, have fallen onto our fence. Even popped a few staples where the panels attach to the posts. Some additional repair may be required, but probably not today.
The meal shown was enhanced by the good neighbor who thoughtfully provided us two large, sweet parsnips, which look more like potatoes in the picture. We peeled and cut them up, then placed them in the roasting pan with a chicken marinated overnight in a balsamic vinagarette. The chicken was de-lish and the parsnips roasted out golden brown, tender and sweet. Did someone say seconds?
