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.
