"I can't believe I never used to eat Brussels sprouts before!"
- My Husband
One Thanksgiving, probably about three years ago, my sister-in-law made a simply amazing roasted Brussels sprouts dish. Neither my husband or I could remember ever having eaten Brussels sprouts - certainly not like that, at least - so it was basically a life-changing experience. Insofar as Brussels sprouts can be life-changing, at least.
Ever since then, I've been using Brussels sprouts every chance I get, using them raw [LIKE THIS!] or roasted, by themselves or with other veggies/ cheeses/ ingredients. And (nearly) every time I make them, my husband says something along the lines of the above quote.
Yep. He even goes back for seconds on the veggies. (Husbands eating veggies... it's a miracle, I tell ya.) Someday maybe I'll be lucky enough to have kids that say the same thing. Fingers crossed.
