Who Knew?

Who on earth knew that brussel sprouts were so tasty?! I don't think I have ever had them before. My mother was a very good mother and did not make us eat many vegetables. She even made separate dishes without onions and peppers for us kids!! I know, we were spoiled. So at the grocery store I saw them and wondered what do those taste like? I was really excited about making them too! I checked with trusty Alton Brown and he suggested a simple steam with Kosher salt. Amazing! It looks like they can also be sauted, roasted, grilled, and wrapped with bacon. I can't wait! What do you do with brussel sprouts?

On the topic of learning something new... I saw the coolest video on YouTube about darning socks!!! Usually we throw holey socks away, but Seth has a nice pair of wool socks he's been wanting me to repair. I honestly didn't know how to darn socks. It is very fascinating, you should check it out!

Rachel, you are awesome! I love brussels sprouts too. We steam ours too. Good luck with the socks! Are you still into scrapbooking?

I honestly can say that I've never eaten brussel sprouts, but I like most veggies, so maybe I'll give them a try!
You are super wife, I don't even know what darning socks is, we just chuck our holey ones in the trash! Good luck!

We had to learn how to darn socks in Nauvoo and I remember thinking that it was such a waste of time. But I guess if you have some socks that you really like then it sort of makes sense.

We love brussel spouts, even pugsy loves them. steamed then eaten with a little vinegar is another way to enjoy them.
