Last week brussels sprouts were on sale at our local grocery store. I'd never tasted them before, and I knew how healthy they were for you so I thought I'd give them a shot. They couldn't really be as bad as everyone makes them out to be right? I mean, it had to just be dirty lies inspired by generations of vegetable hating children right? Surely with my advanced adult palate, I would love the cute little vegetables.
Um, no. When kids say brussels sprouts are gross, it's because they really are gross. I tried sauteing them in a little bit of olive oil and adding a bit of cheese on top. They looked delicious. Then I took a bite. And gagged. Ok, it must have just been the method of preparation. The next night I chopped the rest up and cooked them with apples and brown sugar. They looked delicious again. Then I took a bite. And gagged. Yup, I can guarantee you I will not be forcing my children to eat brussels sprouts. They are disgusting. :(
