Roasted Brussels Sprouts

It's Food Friday!

I'm trying to lose a few pounds, ok, more like 15, so I'm trying to eat a little better. It's been going pretty good. Especially with recipes like this. I happen to love brussels sprouts, and I've never roasted them before so with Ina Garten's recipe I made them the other night and they were delicious!

I used frozen brussels sprouts and thawed them first. Since I liked them a lot, then maybe fresher would be even better. Also, I really just eyeballed the rest of the ingredients (salt, pepper, olive oil) as well as adding some balsamic vinager and parmesan cheese at the end. If you make these, I highly recommend the balsamic vinegar. I think I did 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

Also, since it's Food Friday, I'm going to post pics of the tacos my sister made for me the last time I visited. I'll have to start thinking of something else from her recipes to request for my next visit.

Ok, bad idea posting these because after these pictures I'm pretty sure no one is even thinking about my brussels sprouts now!

I usually just boil the heck out of brussel sprouts then toss them with butter--your way sounds much healthier! I think I'll give it a try next week!
