I'm walking through my grocery and I spot...these!! And had an OMG I NEED THEM moment. And so...the brussels sprouts stalk came home with me. How freaking neat does this thing look?!
I've only ever seen de-stalked brussels sprouts in real life but I'd seen that Gilmore Girls episode from ages ago where the hippy 'long haired freak' has the farmers market in the square and is pissing off Taylor who is trying to kick him out of the square and there's a bit with brussels sprouts on a stalk and oooing and awing over them.
Anyways. They just had to be bought! And with fancy brussels sprouts I decided to try a new recipe for them. Typically I just slice and roast them with a little oil and garlic. This time I got fancy and did a balsamic glaze to go over them. And holy cow...yummy! I think this would be a fun side for Christmas.
