 Roast Brussel Sprouts with Lemon and Parsley Anecdote
(aka my recipe ramble for those who love the waffle)

I LOVE brussel sprouts! When we were kids we used to have competitions to see who could eat the most!

My kids are not so keen!!! But roasted either with lemon and parsley or with garlic oil they will eat a small portion. I am not going to lie…they are still not their favourite, but they will eat them this way.

It has taken me all afternoon to write this post!!! I think because I am sat watching re-runs of Midsommer Murder and drinking bloody marys. Which makes for a wonderful Sunday afternoon, but not a very productive one 😉

Got to love a good BBC whodunit and a classic cocktail. Since dinner is sorted as I have my BBQ Shredded Pork cooking in the slow cooker, I might go make another.

Cheers x

      I hear so many people say that Chrissy, I wonder what it is that stops them appealing to kids?

    We love sprouts here in these parts, unfortunately so do the local hare… We have yet to harvest more than a handful, they leave all of the other winter crops but make a bee line for our kelbimbo, the very cool Hungarian name for them 😀

    Love these, I’d go for honey and mustard as a topping as first choice!

      OH NO!!!! Hungarian Sprouts nappers!!!

      Kelbimbo is the coolest name for them. I obviously have a fondness for the word Sprout, but I am thinking the Hungarian is so much better. Sprinkles and Kelbimbo …. ???????
