I know, I know, Brussel sprouts have a total bad rap! But just trust me for a second, ok? Have I ever lead you astray?
When I told my husband I wanted to try brussel sprouts, he told me he would divorce me if I brought them home. So you know what I did? I bought them. And I hid them in the very back of the refrigerator and piled a bunch of stuff in front of them. And then I cooked them when he wasn’t looking, but I shredded them so he couldn’t tell what they were.
When we sat down to dinner last night he said, “What is this?”
“Have you tasted them?”
“Try them first.”
“Wow! These are really good! What are they?”
“No! What are they really?”
“Brussel Sprouts! With garlic, brown sugar, and pecans.”
“You are so divorced.”
Ha! Too bad he already admitted to liking them! And when I mentioned maybe having them again sometime, he said that would be ok! Imagine that! And honestly, I was really surprised myself at how good these actually were!
