Although I like miniature foods, I've never really been a fan of brussel sprouts. Though I do like veggies, so I tried a few different recipes for them. But brussel sprouts have not grown on me. I do find it interesting that they grow on sticks. Did you know they were cultivated in Brussels, thus being named brussel sprouts and are part of the wild cabbage family. I always did think they resembled tiny cabbages. Tiny, gross cabbages. Heh heh.







Also today is the 143 birthday of Edward Munch. One of Niel and my favorite painters.

I like Munch paintings too. He was one troubled individual. In honor of his birthday, Im gonna go out and steal some of his paintings ;-). Isn't that what fans of his do.

The exhibit Niel and I went to a few months ago was pretty interesting.

Ugh. I hate brussel sprouts. My dad has tried to convince me for years that they were yummy and I cannot eat them. They taste like smelly feet to me. It is interesting to see how they grow tho ... but I agree ... nasty little cabbages they will always be. ;)

I like that "nasty little cabbages they will always be." :)

You might consider this recipe for brussel sprouts: brown a decent-sized pat of butter in a pan; meanwhile, pull all of the leaves off a few brussel sprouts. Once the butter starts to brown, throw the leaves in and saute for about 5 minutes. Serve immediately. They're really good this way. I would never try them before until my friend shared this recipe. My one year old loved them too.
