Gawd, just looking at them makes me gag.
I thought it was me but after some discussion amongst gal pals, we all concur.
Brussels Sprouts are the new " it " veggie.
If you follow cooking blogs as I do, look to see how many of the more recent recipes and or posts are about Brussels Sprouts. Hell, it's even become a regular part of the Sunday morning pater from David Venable, QVC's giddy foodie host to go on and on and on about how much he hates them ( I hear ya David) in a clear marketing ploy to get the guest cooks to amaze him and trick him into actually swallowing them... "Will he actually like them or won't he....stayed tuned to find out next week...remember the show is on from 11 to 1 on Sundays..." ..yeah , subtle as a rash.
Because I got curious..and inundated...I did actually to a bit of reading.
Now, as I have mentioned before my late mother thought the Green Giant boiling bags were a miracle on a par with penicillin.
Fer real y'all.
Unless it was as tuber as in spud or an ear of corn, Betty routinely overcooked veggies , as she had seen her mother do...yeah.
Now, for myself, unless they are a spud, ear of corn or a salad..do not expect me to ever eat cooked veggies.
Steamed yes, blanched,,,yes,,,raw...yes..cooked..HELL NO !
I blame my mother.
When Brussels Sprouts are over boiled , the give off a sulphur smell that you cannot get past.
I've always felt a bit sorry for Southside when he was a baby..you see ..we didn't have a dog..
Yeah, it was mean.
But I'm still not eating them.
