ICK! What IS That?

Aren't they cute? They're like a little cabbage!

My mom used to make me eat brussel spouts. I was pretty sure they had thorns in them.

I made the mistake of sharing with my children, my “fits” about brussel spouts.

Why don’t they remember the specific chores you instruct them to do, but can remember silly stories of yester-year you mentioned in passing?

So I had this great recipe from a friend on Facebook. It much like my asparagus recipe from Pinterest, but add onion powder. Bake, not steam.

Personally – I thought they were great.

But I did hear lots of, “These aren’t just BAD, they’re really, REALLY yucky.”

Come on.

They were NOT that bad!

They’re actually mild and tasty! [not to mention great for you!]

I made sure everyone at least tasted them. I will probably regret that, since I swore my mom hated me for making me eat them.

So much for trying something new!

Off to apologize to my mom, again….

What new tastes have you tried? Were they are flop with you or your family? We must keep trying!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5:17
