Food left from christmas time.

I have all sorts of stuff lurking ,needing to have something done with them.
Parsnips, carrots, sweet potato have been made into a mash,with some butter to enrich it. Made two dishes. 
Then the tomatoes were completely tasteless,so I stewed them up with lots of garlic and onion,plus rosemary and a huge bay leaf,and some almost gone over fresh  basil.i blitzed the basil with  the tomato, which was flabby and weak tasting,so I added some tomato purée which gave it some  more body then sieved the lot .i have frozen the sauce,and used the residue to cook a guinea fowl Breast .  Then I roasted some garlic which was a bit soft, and blitzed that with some cream,and have frozen that. It will come in useful later on.
Finally I made some more lemon curd ice cream with the leftover Double cream,and Greek Yoghurt, it has made a kilo! That will come in useful at any time. 
In all, a good morning's work !
And I cracked and shelled all the walnuts and hazlenuts ,have frozen the walnuts,as they tend to go rancid easily,and have grilled the hazlenuts,and of course, left then too long under the grill so they are somewhat bronzed....
