Today’s casserole carrier is a gift for the bride and groom for this weekend’s wedding. Apparently when I purchased fabric(s) for these projects, I was feeling ‘tropical’ because two of the carriers have a definite “Hawaiian” theme to them… this is one of them. In hindsight, I wish I would have found some sort of ‘vegetable toss’ print instead because that would have been more fun (maybe future carriers).
Today’s recipe is an absolute FAVORITE of our family. It’s not a casserole, but it’s definitely a favorite side dish that is served during special occasions: Parsnip, Carrot, and Leek Gratin. It’s so tasty that even my dad (who, next to Easton, was the pickiest eater I know) loved it…. until he heard the word “parsnip” then refused to eat anymore.
