On Brussels Sprouts.

I spent my whole life convinced that I hated Brussels sprouts.  As it turns out, that's not true.  When roasted in a stoneware pan with a little olive oil and garlic they're pretty good.  And on that note, I decided to see if I could change B'nut's perception on these little green super foods.

“B’nut, why don’t you come over here and try a roasted Brussels sprout?”


“It’s ok, I tasted them. They’re really good.”

B’nut looks over toward the stove in obvious alarm.  “I don’t like them.”

“Oh?  Are you sure?  Because I’m a better cook than anyone else, so I bet you’ll like these.  You like pretty much everything I make.”

“Ok.”  She chews thoughtfully on a bite.  “You are right.  You are the best cook in the world.  These are good.”

Love it! Funny thing, when we were at Costco today, I asked Cory if he liked brussel sprouts. "I don't know." We both hated them as kids and decided we need to try them as adults. Garlic and olive oil, huh?
