I have always been curious about brussel sprouts. I think because I love miniature things and they look like miniature heads of cabbage. However, I have only admired them for their looks. I had never eaten them. Then the other day I read Lee's blog and she mentioned her slight dislike for brussel sprouts. I had to find out.
So, today I bought some. Not the fresh ones or the plain frozen ones...I wasn't that brave. I bought the Green Giant frozen box. It already had butter and cheese - so why not? I cooked them in the microwave (another thing I rarely use), I got a fork and dug in.
The verdict? They were o.k. That's it. The small ones were better than the large, they all had a little bit of bitterness. The thing that I did NOT like at all were that the larger ones seemed to expand as I chewed. I felt like I had a big mouth full of leaves. LOL. Anyway, pretty uneventful, but now I can say that I HAVE tried brussel sprouts. =]
