The recipes that y’all link up every Monday inspire me, make me drool and often have me jumping into the kitchen to try my own hand at them.
A few weeks ago, my lovely friend, Amy, linked up her Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe. She talked about them so enthusiastically that despite my reservations I grabbed some at the grocery store and tried my own hand at making these reportedly delicious Roasted Brussels Sprouts.
For the first time in my adult life, there were brussels sprouts in my kitchen.
I cleaned them, chopped off their stems and got out my olive oil, sea salt and pepper
I tossed the brussels sprouts in a bowl with the olive oil, sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper and then laid them out on my pan to roast them in the oven
I set the timer and went back to laundry and working
hmmm I can’t believe they aren’t ready yet…
What!! Why is the timer off????
and that, friends, is where my brussels sprouts tale ends.
I never got to taste them
I did, however learn a valuable lesson.
When timing something in the oven, make sure you don’t use the microwave timer that you also recently taught your 8 year old how to use to time herself doing timed math tests
Amy – I shall have to try them again, when Princess has a new timer
To get the recipe and try these delicious snacks for yourself – go visit the lovely Amy.
HUGE thanks to Deanna for picking up the ball and keeping Mouthwatering Monday going last week during our internet storm debacle! AT&T came out and had to completely replace the entire outdoor system, the lightning fried the box!
A few favorites from last week’s linky

Can’t wait to see what y’all have for me this week! I’m still recuperating from my amazingly Tonguegasmic visit to New Orleans with Zatarain’s and a few of my new (and old) favorite people!
