BRUSSEL SPROUTS!Steve has been telling us all for years how much he hates brussel sprouts. About a week ago we got a bag full of big brussel sprouts from Bountiful Baskets. So here was our chance to try them. None of the rest of us has ever had them. It had been a long time for Steve...
My friend Corine and her family love them. She suggested I boil them for a few minutes and then saute them with a little bacon.
I promise Steve was chewing - he even ate 2. But he still doesn't like them.
Seth made it through one bite.
Rhianna ate her piece very grudgingly.
Rand put on a brave face and a smile and at first said he liked it...by the end of his one piece he had changed his mind.
And my take on it? I had 3 pieces. The bitterness reminded me of other German type tastes I had growing up (cabbages). I thought they were fine and tolerable, but I didn't think I wanted to eat too much. Unlike other veggies that I could keep going on (CORN! peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers etc) a few was enough. But we tried them. And next time we will probably give them to the Neumillers.
