sounds great - now to figure out what part of the store i'd find parsnips in!

@ Brooke

They are usually pretty close to the carrots :-)

The stew sounds great. I've never had this combination of ingredients before.

Hey Pierrette, I have heard of vegetarian stock, but never of vegetarian beef bouillon cubes? Can you find those in you garden variety grocery store or do you go to a special store for that?

Pierrette said...


We get them at the bulk supply and restaurant supply store. I think I have seen them at places like the big carrot in Toronto. So I would check the biggest health food store you guys have your end of Canada.
