Thankfully, we've been using an app on our iPrecious called Lose It, which is a place to log any and all food and drink items so you can see at the end of the day
This past weekend, Hubs really craved red meat so he bought us some good steaks and marinated those bad boys for a whole day. It was my job to come up with a side item. However. As we had dined at Five Guys earlier in the day I only had a select amount left for my calorie availability left. What was a hungry girl to do?
Enter Brussels sprouts.
Little, dainty, cabbage like veggies. Can be boiled, roasted, steamed or raw. But raw is just ick. Probably there are a billion ways to prepare these guys, but I decided to roast them.
First I washed well. Peeled the outer layer. Cut off tough stem section. Chopped in half. Placed on foil lined cookie sheet and doused with olive oil. Sprinkled with salt n peppa. Placed in 400* oven. Cooked for 15 minutes.
THEY WERE AMAZEBALLS, PEOPLE.
My husband was a bit offended as we ate. We did not rave at his delectable steak with pink oozy juice flooding our plates, speckled with Really Good Meat Seasonings and Such. Nay. Instead, we all sang the praises of our Brussels sprouts. At one point, I raised my arms in a Victory V, in celebration of this tasty masterpiece.
For real, y'all. They were awesome.
Did I get a picture? Heck, no. I was too busy stuffing my face.
In the immortal words of Dr. Dre...WE OUT.
P.S. If you're here visiting from my buddy and pal, Lemonade Makin' Mama- Welcome! Also, I'd offer you some Brussels sprouts but guess what? I ATE THEM ALL.
