Guess What. I love brussel sprouts. HA! Who ever thought they would hear THAT coming out of my mouth? Please pick your jaw up off the ground.
I bought these at the Farmer’s Market by the office (I felt very sophisticated) . I liked that I could buy just a little since only Pinto and I enjoy eating them in my house.
They are super easy to make. When I eat them, I feel as if I have finally grown up. (Although, I know plenty of adults who won’t eat them. Yep! I am talking about you Eyeball!)
The Aforementioned Brussel Sprouts
1 TBS of Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper, to taste
- Preheat the oven to 375
- Layer a cookie sheet with aluminum foil
- Cut the Brussel Sprouts in half (I sometimes remove the outside leaves if they look unappealing)
- Toss with Olive Oil
- Spread them out on the cookie sheet, salt & pepper them to your preference
- Bake for 8 minutes, stir them up, bake for another 5-7 minutes
I like them best hot. When I tried reheating them I wasn’t too happy with them. It could just be that the microwave is not the answer to reheating everything.
Does anyone else like Brussel Sprouts? Did seeing this make you run to the store to buy some? HA!
This was a first for me – Butternut Squash sounds so fancy. Truth be told, I thought I was buying a spaghetti squash… Either way, so easy & delicious…. (Ignore the ham…. that will be posted later in the week)
Why pay for Texas Toast? Here is a way to make your own, home-made Garlic Bread.
The best part is YOU decide how much garlic you put on…
Yes, I made potato chips in the microwave. No, I am not crazy, I googled it. Overall, not bad. Add some light ranch dip & we maybe onto something ….
Did you know you can cook fresh corn on the cob in 3 minutes?
Ready? It is a little difficult:
Step 1: Place corn as is on a microwave plate
Step 2: Place in microwave & close door
Step 3: Cook it for 2 and a half minutes per ear
Step 4: Remove corn from microwave
Step 5: Let it cool down a bit, peel, eat
Basically, the corn does all the work and steams itself in the microwave. If only everything was this easy.
