happy halloween!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.  My stomach still hates me.  All the sugar around just makes it worse so I am trying to not eat too much.  But I can eat as many brussel sprouts as I want to!  My current favorite way to eat brussel sprouts is roasted with olive oil, salt, and pepper.  They actually turn sweet in twenty minutes.  I guess you could call them candy then but my Tall Short Person would say not!  She is unwilling to try them even though Small Mister likes them.  The cooks boil them at her work.  That just does not sound good to me!

roasted brussel sprouts

as many brussel sprouts as you wish to eat, go for the small ones

a couple tablespoons of olive oil



Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.  Pour the olive oil on a pan.  I have a cast iron pizza pan I really like.  Cut the stems off the brussel sprouts.  Peel off the outside leaves.  Cut into quarters.  Put on the pan.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  

Put in the oven.  Stir at the 10 minute mark.  They should be nice and golden at 20 minutes.

These are so good I did not get a picture of them after roasting.  But we were also hungry.  I served these with other roasted vegetables and baked salmon.  So far, my stomach is very happy with me.  I am not sure the piece of fresh bread I am about to have will settle, but I hope so.
