Kim and I hosted a pre-Thanksgiving potluck with a few friends--we fried a turkey and made dessert, and everyone else brought their favorite side dishes. This dish was made by our friend Hilary, and was a nice twist on a dish that is a staple in many households. I love the texture that the parsnips add.
Place the potatoes and parsnips in a large pot. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Add 2 tablespoons salt, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 15 - 18 minutes. Drain and return to the pot. Mash with the milk, butter, scallions, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
