Brussels Sprouts!

Never had these before.... I always heard they were gross, so I never wanted to try them.  Since I've been on this journey I've tried a lot of new things.... My first big new thing this year was shooting a 9mm (previously had shot a Glock .40) - and that turned out awesome -- not to mention the whole past year of trying new things was awesome too - so I'm continuing that this year!  I was in Wal-Mart yesterday to get some veggies and decided to get some frozen brussels sprouts.  I called my mom on the way home to ask how they're good - she is not a picky eater so I figured she could help me out!  Her response was 'Oh I'd never eat them!'  Turns out she had gotten sick after eating them once when she was a kid and has kind of held a grudge.  ;)  My boyfriend basically had the same response - but that's because he's not a big vegetable person.....

Today I went ahead with my plan and cooked them up for lunch.  Threw a little Smart Balance Light butter on there, and some black pepper & sea salt -- Well turns out they were pretty stinkin' good.  I'm wondering if there's other ways to prepare them that would be good -- so expect recipe ideas including brussels sprouts on here in the near future!  :)



    Here is my favorite way (only way I have ever cooked them) Have eaten them twice and have another bag to cook in the frig.

    1. Someone else told me about a recipe similar to this -- I'm gonna have to try it - Looks delish!! :) Thanks!!
