Random Uselessness

So I had brussels sprouts on Thanksgiving.. and I liked 'em!! This, my friends, is huge. Brussels sprouts used to be my most hated of hated veggies (and I HATED veggies!), my parents used to make me sit at the table until I finished all the greenery on my plate and if I didn't finish them then I got the same darn veggies for breakfast, lunch, dinner.. until I finally ate them. Brussels sprouts however were the vegetable that I would end up either starving for 3 days or grounded over, because I flat out refused to eat them.
All that changed on Thursday, my wonderful friend Venus made a very tasty (vegan) veggie dish with brussels sprouts, and for the first time in my life I willingly put one in my mouth.. and now I find myself thinking I will stop at the grocery store tonight and pick a peck of sprouts to have for dinner. (They are very high in Vitamin A, C, folic acid & fibre).
Yay! This has been your nonsense blog post of the day!

( I also always thought that it was brussel sprouts but according to both Wikipedia and my spell check it is brussellS sprouts... who knew?)

I have a great recipe for roasted brussels sprouts with a few shallots thrown in. Shockingly good.

That's awesome! I'm doing my usual "I hate doing what I should be doing so I'm checking every blog ever instead of writing" moment.

Or maybe I *am* stalking you.

Beaver's most hated food.

And I agree. Your parents were tough. We're happy if our kids eat the poptarts.

That's just yucky! Of course, I am thinking you need to pretty much like all veggies, being vegan.

I hated those things too, then found a renewed love of them last year thanks to the following simple recipe:

Mix in a bowl with a tablespoon of olive oil and a dash of lemon pepper. Cook at 400 for 20 minutes, broiling the last two minutes until they char a bit.

Easy, good for you, and tastes great! Must be a mature taste bud that kicks in after 20 years. ;-)
