Eat Your Brussels Sprouts!

Because of my new-found love for brussels sprouts, I thought I would share a favorite recipe to make them courtesy of Pinterest, with my own little spin.

I bought about a pound of these little baby cabbages and I cut off the trunks, chopped them in half, and added them to a hot skillet with olive oil. They take a bit of time, maybe 7 minutes on each side but it is hard to saute them on the round side so I added a little water and covered with a lid to steam them and make sure they got soft. I chopped up 4 cloves of garlic (you can add less if you are not as in love with the stuff as me) and added that to the pan when I flipped the sprouts half way through. Lastly, I squeezed half of a fresh lemon to add flavor to the party and it was just about complete. When I speared one with a fork and I could tell they were tender, I took them off the heat, put them in a bowl, added some parmesan reggiano that happened to the be in the fridge, and then, dug in! How pretty is that green color! And, super healthy and filling, win win.
