Snowed in today - so I am baking a ham, potatoes au gratin, green beans and brussels.  I might get fancy with the brussels.....

I've got a few ways I've become obsessed with cooking brussel sprouts. I like to slice them in half and toss them with olive oil, salt, pepper and cornmeal then roast them. Also, I like to shave them thin and toss with Caesar salad dressing, croutons and parmesan. Anyways, I'd love to hear how you make them.

My dinner is leftover Chinese food from New Year's Eve: steamed broccoli and tofu over vegetable fried rice.

I Like to roast them and top with some maple syrup, toasted pecans and hot sauce.  I will fry a slice or 2 of bacon, slice them and sautee in the drippings ( lightly just to get a bit of char - top with the crumbled bacon and a bit of brown sugar..  I also slice into salads.  The cornmeal sounds really good with them roasted.  I usually either roast / quick sautee and then top with whatever strikes my fancy.  Really one of my fav veggies.

Ooh, I love the idea of maple syrup and toasted pecans: I'll have to try that soon. The cornmeal adds a nice crunch to the outside, which contrasts nicely when the inside gets all tender.

Thai lemongrass chicken and rice with candy cane cookies.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Just leftovers, but lunch was homemade vegetable soup with grilled cheese sandwiches on homemade bread at the home of some friends. I'm so spoiled!

Beer-braised whole chicken with onions, white rice and biscuits. It was delicious.

Homemade spaghetti and meatballs. Made the meatballs last night and I'm cooking the sauce today. It's in our slow cooker and it smells amazing. And I get to smell it...all day.

Pork chops brined in apple-juice brine. Oh my Spaghetti Monster, they were tasty!  And the leftovers, after a spell in the fridge, were still moist as could be!

pigs and apples should get married and have babies.  They are so yummy together

Baked potato with leftover ham and a fried egg on top. Pure comfort food.
