A few days ago, Amanda, Vayu, Evelyn, and I went to a nearby farmstand and found/bought wonderful fresh vegetables, including...
HUGE brussels sprouts... hopefully, there will be pictures above of them - cleaning, and cooking. I did my best to make them like my husband does: ie., seared - almost black - on one side, with garlic. Well, Tim also adds chopped bacon or pancetta, and that's not my cup of tea, so I left that part out.
They were wonderful (emphasis, "Wahhhn-der-ful" --- Sarah P-C says she loves the way I say it; it's a little embarrassing. : )
We had them with the udon soup last night.
