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?)
