January's Vegetable of the Month

Item #9 - Try one new vegetable a month.

January's vegetable was brussel sprouts. Not an easy favorite, and not liked by most people I know, but I figured it's green, so it must have some nutritional value, let's give it a go.

We tried them steamed. That was a disaster. They were barely palitable.

Then I tried a recipe with maple syrup and canadian bacon. Yummy!Now that is how to eat brussel sprouts!

Too bad the maple syrup and canadian bacon defeat the whole purpose of eating a vegetable! Unless of course you take the view that a vegetable in your tummy is a good thing, no matter what you had to do to get it there. LOL.
