The one where I gloat.
The other day I tweeted that Bobby got upset when we ran out of brussels sprouts at dinner. That boy LOVES his cruciferous veggies. AND YOU CAN TOO!
Many many people have disliked brussels sprouts – with good reason. Mushy, over cooked yuckiness. However, I can lay claim to at lead four FOUR converts that I know of. Possibly more. How do I do it? Simple, high heat, no water. This gives them a rich nutty taste.
Here are my two point five favorite ways of making them.
Way #1 – hash
Cut of the dry ends and remove loose/yucky leaves. Slice it up vertically, as thin as you can. Quickly pan fry with a small amount of one of the following:
That list ranges from healthiest to least healthy. Can you guess which one is the most yummy?
Mix in toasted slivered almonds (and bacon bits if you went the bacon route) and serve.
Way #2 – roasted
Cut of the dry ends and remove loose/yucky leaves. Slice it vertically into quarters. Put them all into a metal baking dish (I usually use a bread pan) with one of the lubricants noted above, chopped garlic and some Montreal steak spice. Roast at 350, stirring every 10 minutes, until about 1/3 of them kind of look caramelized.
Way #2.5 – BBQ
Prepare the same as above but in a foil packet. Throw on the bbq with and turn every 5 minutes until you can smell them when up close.
If you have never likes brussels sprouts before, I dare you to try one of these recipes. DOUBLE DARE YOU.

On this day:
In 2009 – people mocked me during the aftermath of my car accident for not having a cellphone, but ou know what, I didn’t need one because EVERYONE ELSE had one…
In 2008 – selfish bus users
In 2007 – my 7 year plan is now my 5 year plan, although I doubt I’ll quit my job.
In 2006 – I think I still have that same batch of TVP
In 2005 – I still have that dress… *sigh*
