a post about how to make brussels sprouts


first, you cut the stem end off of the sprouts. Then you cut them in half lengthwise. Then you saute them in olive oil until they brown a little and get tender. I got tired of waiting for the tenderness so i put a little water in the pan and put a lid on it until they got tender. Then you throw in a clove of garlic (thinly sliced) and a handful of golden raisins. Cook this for a minute or two and voila! Brussels sprouts.

Can't I just steal a TINY bit of that cooking genius from you? Pleeeease? I'll swap you my ability to spit Cheerios really far. What do you say? (Hey, don't underestimate that skill. It's great fun at parties.)

I used to see this particular vegetable at the farmer's market but always passed them by because I couldn't figure out what to do with them. They always looked so neat on that big long stem. Thanks! I WILL try that. Did June Cleaver ever serve those?
