Boy sprouts and Brussel sprouts

These two are growing up entirely too fast.  Alex just got glasses, and Will wanted a new “do” like his buddy Maddox.  I miss these two munchkins, as well as their big cousins.
Alex, Will 2.13
Diana served some great appetizers before we went out to dinner the other night.  This one is a keeper and is also posted on Dyer Dining:

Marinated Brussel Sprouts
2 10 oz packages frozen Brussel sprouts (or cook fresh)
1 ½ C sugar
1 C cider vinegar
5 Tbsp horseradish
½ tsp salt
2 Tbsp dry mustard

Cook sprouts until tender and drain.
Heat vinegar; add sugar, stirring to dissolve.  Add remaining ingredients, and pour over sprouts (sprouts can be cut in half before marinating, if desired).  Refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight.
Drain, and put in bowl, reserving some of the liquid in case any are left over.  Enjoy!

I wanted to eat a whole bowl of these babies.  Try it, if you like Brussel sprouts…and even if you don’t!  They are that good…and tangy.

Thought for the day:  Never a failure; always a lesson!

May your lessons today be simple, y’all!

Yes the little ones grow up way too fast.

I love brussel sprouts. This sound really good too. It's the horseradish that got me. Yummy.

Love the thought for the day too. Right on the money.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs from cold but sunny California. ☺
