The kitchen is a mess, but I feel fine

In an effort to eat both better and cheaper, I've been cooking at home more. Over the weekend mrrranda and I had homemade farmer's soup, homemade white bread, and homemade chocolate chip cookies. Everything came out really well!

For the soup I had to buy turnips and a rutabaga. I've never bought turnips or rutabagas before. The cashier at the grocery store looked at the rutabaga and said, "Help me out--what is that?!?" Apparently rutabagas aren't common purchases.
