Today is Friday again and together with our online bookclub Cook the book Friday, I made a recipe from Dorie Greenspans new book: The way I cook. This time a recipe with brussels sprouts. And although the kids are already a lot older, they have never developed a joy for eating Brussels sprouts (except for the sprout stew that has been a favorite here for years).
But a recipe from Dorie is always worth trying out, so I went into the kitchen again and this time flavored the sprouts with bacon, mustard and maple syrup. I think everything will taste great with these ingredients and that turned out to be the case. For me then. The kids could live with it being eaten for once, but they really do not like it (yet).
Another missed opportunity (for them).
And then the hardest part: the photo. It gets dark here so early that my camera just refused to take another picture. I thought it was me, so I got my husband to try it, but there was nothing more to do then this shot. Not the most beautiful picture, but still it was a tasty dish.
