2 great recipes

None of my mindless thought today or teary eyed "so-that's-why-I-am-the-way-I am" feelings.

Lets talk about recipes...are you looking for something to make this week.

Yesterday I posted my goal list of what I wanted to be able to do.  I was able to get everything done except for the creme brulee.  I think I will do that this morning.  Here is the recipe I will be using.

Most of my friends know that I love brussel sprouts!  I like them plain, steamed and buttered but this recipe caught my eye.  Not sure it would be appreciated by everyone but I know I would thoroughly enjoy it!

caramelized brussels sprouts

12-14 large brussels sprouts
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
pinch sea salt
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup roughly chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted

Slice each brussels sprout very thin until you have a mound of feathery brussels sprout ribbons. Heat the olive oil over medium high in a large skillet and saute the garlic for 30 seconds. Add the brussels sprouts and continue sauteing for another 4-5 minutes, until bright green and tender. Add the sea salt and brown sugar and toss together. Finish by adding the toasted nuts.
20 minutes

Hmmm this blog has me thinking...she has another recipe that does the shredded brussel sprouts with bacon and couscous.  I am not thinking dinner tonight will be caramelized brussel sprouts, with shredded chicken and bacon.  Doesn't that sound yummy??
