I Made Dinner!

Guess what?  I made dinner the other night.  That's right, me! 

Kate posted a recipe for brussel sprouts on her blog a while back that I had been dying to try.  Eric wasn't feeling well and usually that means he won't eat much, so I decided to make his least favorite veggie.  I decided that I'm not a mature enough cook yet not to measure, but I still thought they came out pretty good, you know, if you're into that sort of thing.

I also made some chicken to go along with it which was REALLY good if I do say so myself.  I cut a chicken breast into bite sized pieces and threw them in a pan with about a quarter cup of olive oil and soy sauce, maybe 2 tablespoons of honey and a clove of chopped garlic.  Saute until done and voila, pretty decent chicken.

Eric didn't finished his brussel sprouts, but I let him go to bed anyway.

We need to get Eric into B-sprouts.

Tell me about it. Have any other recipes I can try?

basically bacon. bacon cuts through the bitterness of the sprouts as well as adding that yummy taste. i would imagine the honey in this recipe was for the same reason.

you have a food processor, right? throw them into that and make some shredded b-sprouts, and saute them in some wine and butter (and salt, of course).

as an aside, my word verification for this post is "hosize" as in, "my tube top is a ho size six."

Ha! That's fantastic.

I'll try that method next time. Eric likes anything with bacon.
