So I cooked Brussels sprouts for the first time tonight.
I love that I can just look online for ways to cook things. I, of course, refused to follow any instructions which referred to the veggie as Brussel sprouts–as that in incorrect. It is plural!
Anyway, I am having my Brussels Sprouts and brown rice right now as I type this. I added a little olive oil with some Kickin’ Chicken seasoning and salt and ground pepper. Not bad.
I am not too picky when it comes to veggies. There are few I won’t eat or won’t try. I think this may be the first time I am having Brussels Sprouts.
Today for lunch my work team went out to celebrate the newest permanent member of our team. I looked at the menu ahead of time to get some ideas. But Skates always has specials–usually different kinds of fish, which is what I figured I would have. I had water to drink; a taste of a few appetizers; I ordered grilled rainbow trout with no oil, which came with fingerling potatoes in a little olive oil and a tomato/olive mix; for dessert I had a non-fat cappuccino and sorbet; I also had a few sips of a Mojito. Some of my fellow co-workers are lightweights and need help in the booze department. I am always happy to help, along with another co-worker.
