146.6...Roasted Brussels Sprouts

If you are like most people, Brussels sprouts are not your favorite vegetable. I will bet you that if you try roasting them, you will change your mind! Here is a simple recipe to get you started on your love for Brussels sprouts.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts (Serves 6)

Recipe from The Barefoot Contessa 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 lbs. Brussels sprouts (can cut in half)

3 Tbsp. good olive oil

3/4 tsp. kosher salt

1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Taste for salt and pepper and serve immediately.

These were delicious with the Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken and Mashed Potatoes I served the other night. 

I took a break from making new recipes last night and defrosted some Spaghetti Sauce with Ground Beef to serve over pasta.

I wasn’t completely lazy…I did make a salad. :)

Are you tired of my current breakfast yet?

I’m not!

I attended an event for my daughter at school this morning. I then took a Barre class at the gym this morning. I didn’t feel like I got a good workout in and I had some extra time so I hit the treadmill to get my sweat on.

I met Alicia for lunch at Big Bang Sushi which has since replaced our beloved Love Boat Sushi. With the exception of a decor change and an addition of “all you can eat”, the menu was basically the same. Thank goodness. I can’t live without my Wasabi Roll! 

I found that if my meal starts with soup, I tend to eat less. Sometimes.

We shared our usual spread of sushi:

For some reason, one of my kids miraculously requests Brussels sprouts. I'll take it;-)
