Okay, I'm being totally blind here, but where's the recipe? That sound SO good!

Your recipe is very interesting recipe.

Here's one from Central Market (and HEB affiliate http://www.centralmarket.com/). It's a much healthier substitute for the old cream cheese and sour cream potatoe recipe.

Mashed Potatoes with Herb Cheese

3 1/4 lbs of Yukon Gold or russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 1/2 lb Celery root, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3 whole peeled garlic cloves plus 1 T. minced garlic
4.4 oz Herb Cheese
1/2 C (1 stick) butter

Place potatoes, celery root and whold garlic cloves in large pot. Add enough cold water to cover vegetables. Salt the water and bring to a boil (I didn't add any salt). Cover partiall and boil until vegetables are very tenter, about 40 minutes. Drain.

Transfer vegetables to a large bowl. Using electric mixer, beat mixture until almost smooth. Add minced garlic, herb cheese and butter; beat until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be prepared 3 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature. Re-warm over medium-heat, stirring frequently.)

Hey Wendy! The recipe is in the second paragraph. I just cut up one parsnip and 1 and 1/2 pears into 1/4 inch slices. Also, I think I used a medium shallot and a 1/2 cup walnuts. It's pretty easy to just eyeball everything and use as much or as little to your liking.

Thanks for the additional recipe BoomerMom - I'm headed to my farmer's market this weekend so I can't wait to buy my produce and try it!
