My mom said she never gave us brussels sprouts when we were younger because she did not think we would eat them. I think the truth is that she did not want to eat them but I will just let her pretend. About 2 years ago I had my first brussels sprout while on a cruise. At that time I was not impressed but I did not hate them. Today at Wal-Mart I decided to buy some brussels sprouts and then tonight I roasted them with potatoes. Covered with EVOO, salt and pepper, in oven at 400 degrees for about 35 min. I like them but they are kinda plain. Next time I will try using different seasoning. Yea for green veggies.
