Brussels sprouts heaven:
Roasted with garlic and salt.
Somewhere, a frog barks.

      I didn’t like them, really, either, until I had them roasted with olive oil, bacon, garlic, pepper, and salt–then sprinkled with Parmesan (thank you daughter Jessica). THEN, I acquired a taste (because there WAS taste). Now, it’s one of my favorite things.

    Gotta love those brussel sprouts! Don’t think I’ve ever seen an ode to them before. Well done!

    I don’t know why some people don’t like them – have they ever tried them with garlic and salt?

      Probably grew up with them just boiled. I wasn’t a fan either until my daughter fixed ’em and did it right. Now, they’re part of the rolling menu.
