When I was grocery shopping the other day, I saw a package of Brussels Sprouts and I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

Balsamic-Roasted Brussels Sprouts (Serves 4)

Recipe adapted from Ina Garten 


1 1/2 pounds Brussels Sprouts, trimmed and cut in half through the core

1/4 cup good olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 Tbsp syrupy balsamic vinegar


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

2. Place the Brussels sprouts on a sheet pan, including some of the loose leaves, which get crispy when they're roasted. Add the olive oil, 1 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper, toss with your hands, and spread out in a single layer.

3. Roast the Brussels sprouts for 20 to 30 minutes, until they're tender and nicely browned. Toss once during roasting. 

4. Remove from the oven, drizzle immediately with the balsamic vinegar, and toss again. Taste for seasonings, and serve hot.

To go along with the Brussels sprouts, I roasted some salmon with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Delicious and very filling meal!

The kids are out of school for the next three days so this morning was nice and relaxing. Breakfast was pineapple Chobani yogurt, Applesauce Granola and strawberries.

That was the last of the applesauce granola so I'll be making a new granola today!

I took my car in to get fixed, went to the gym, then came home for lunch.
