One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.

Am fear nach gleidh na h–airm san t–sith, cha bhi iad aige ’n am a’ chogaidh.
He that keeps not his arms in time of peace will have none in time of war.

I've had this at one of our local Scottish Highland games and it was delicious.

Neeps and Tatties

2 pounds parsnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup heavy cream or half and half
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Special equipment: a potato ricer or a food mill fitted with medium disk

Cover parsnips and potatoes with cold water by 1 inch in a 6- to 8-quart pot, then add 1tablespoon salt and bring to a boil, partially covered. Reduce heat and simmer vegetables, partially covered, until very tender but not falling apart, 30 to 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring cream, butter, pepper, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt to a simmer in 4-quart heavy pot over moderate heat.

Drain vegetables in a colander. Force warm vegetables through ricer into cream mixture, then stir to combine well.
