Saturday In the Park

Saturday, January 12, 2013

I like to blog with song titles as my entry titles because if I just used something relevant to what I usually blog, it would be something along the lines of "same old same old". So I'm not actually in the park. But I liked Chicago. Had a few albums of theirs eons ago.

Currently I'm keeping one of the dogs company. Or he's keeping me company. I'm not really sure which. And I'm enjoying a few quiet moments before I have to go pick up the kids from GiGi's house, where they spent last night. And if I failed to blog last night, (which I did) it's because I was spending quality time with my husband. We prepared a nice dinner together, filet mignon, with roasted new potatoes, and tried brussels sprouts for the first time. They tasted exactly like what they appear to be, which is wee cabbages. His comment was that while he wouldn't want to eat them every night, he knew we needed to add more veggies to our repertoire than green beans and broccoli, and that these would be acceptable on occasion. He's not Sparking, but he's trying to be more health conscious too. Fortunately for him, he doesn't have the same sugar/carb addiction that I do. His problem is more one of portion distortion, and making up for skipping lunch by eating a huge dinner.

The recipe I used is www.foodnetwork.com/reci
pes/food-network-kitchens/
roasted-garlic-brussels-sp
routs-recipe/index.html
, but there are a bunch of roasted brussels sprouts recipes on SparkRecipes, too.

Plans for today include shopping. I may count that as my walking for the day.

    Thanks for giving a description for how brussels sprouts taste. I've always been nervous about trying them, but I like cabbage, so I'll give them a shot now emoticon

    I am adding more veggies in as well to help curb my sugar/carb addition. brussels sprouts is one of those things that I haven't tried. I don't like cabbage at all, so I'm pretty sure that I won't ever try them, but great job for you in adding another one to your repertoire! emoticon
