Operation: Encourage Don to Like Brussels Sprouts is underway. Though my darling dear is a far more adventurous eater than I, there are certain foods that - thanks to previous uninspiring* exposure - he has long been certain he doesn't like. Asparagus. Steak. Nutella.

All right, maybe not that last one.

As chance would have it, Brussels sprouts were on sale at my local store this week. I think it was awomanthatsblue suggested roasting them; I'm totally on board with that. Of course I can look up recipes, but if anyone has personal experience with this particular veggie, feel free to share! Otherwise I'm going to toss them with olive oil, salt and pepper and pop 'em in a 400 degree oven for 20-30 minutes... just see if I don't.

*He didn't realize asparagus isn't naturally stringy, nor that properly cooked steak isn't meant to be shoe-leather tough.
