on loving an often hated veggie
Brussel sprouts have a bad rap. They seem to be the vegetable most featured in cartoons and movies, as they're pushed around on the plate, fed to the dog under the table, and just hated on in general!
I probably would have agreed until recently, as my tastes seem to really be changing. There are so many flavors I've developed a taste for in the past few years, brussel sprouts included. Tonight with dinner I made roasted brussel sprouts following this recipe, and they were delicious. Even Will, a somewhat picky eater when it comes to new foods, liked them! On top of being delicious, they were very, very easy to prepare. Luckily I bought two boxes of them when I was at the grocery store on Sunday (by accident, actually) so they'll probably be roasted up later in the week!
