Ok, it’s day 2 of the new year and I’m starting out on a good note. It was a vegan dinner tonight made with a no-recipe recipe because they were almost all leftovers! Yes! On the right side of my plate, I have leftover couscous from the lunch I made on Saturday (see previous post). After I stuffed those acorn squash, I had a bunch leftover and I couldn’t let it go to waste. In the middle are some lovely green beans that I bought at Sprouts yesterday. I steamed them in the microwave (about 5 minutes) then melted some Earth Balance over the top and added salt and pepper. Then, on the left, are leftover Brussels sprouts and potatoes from our New Years Eve dinner at Union Public House. It was hearty and satisfying and delicious and I am feeling good about myself right now! After eating these Brussels sprouts tonight, it reminded me how much I absolutely love them. I am going to have to get some to make more this week.

I’ve never had Brussels sprouts before! Doug says they’re absolutely terrible but I’m curious to see if I’d like them.
They are an acquired taste and have to be prepared the right way. For example, I prefer them roasted. Anyway, you have try a new food 15 times before you will know if you like it or not. And an amazing vegetable like Brussels sprouts definitely deserves a fair shot in my opinion. 🙂
