Brussels Sprouts are the most maltreated and maligned vegetable. They taste good if not overcooked. The problem is that they are almost invariably overcooked, which gives them that bitter taste.

Along with spinach and beets. There is no need to cook spinach; and beets can be done in a variety of ways...such as borscht.

Pickled beets are fantastic in shawarma sandwiches.

We don't have Thanksgiving down here, but it is Eid Al-Adha*!

Which I think might serve as an equivalent to your Thanksgiving, in the context. I generally enjoy My time and revel in eating meat, lots and lots of Meat. The main theme is like any other feast, a polite excuse for indulgence, going out, getting together with relatives and friends and generally enjoy life, since this is my default mode (the enjoying life part) there would be no big differences.

I feel sorry for the innocent animals who are being slaughtered because "Allah said so." And I feel it is more like "Butchers Feast" since they're the ones truly benefits in the long run! Rivers of blood from innocent animals shall run for four days, truly, "Fuck Islam."

Aside from that, I think I'll stop here lest I go beyond "off-topic."

Since I feel I already did, this is for Diwanna, try Basbosa for dessert!

Well Spelled Moon, we went a little chocolate dipping crazy last night. Started with Biscotti, moved to Oreo cookies, and then to tortilla chips after a few libations? Some ideas were better than others, but it was a lot of fun. Thanks for the idea.

In the spirit of chocolate dipping, we are STILL eating on the buckeyes my baby made smile

Decadent and delicious!

Why does eating mass amounts of chocolate feel delightfully sinful?!

That may be why the first bite tasted great, and then the second chew lost all of its flavor and I was left with only texture.

I will try this new recipe. I love fried okra so maybe there is still hope yet!

I just made brussel sprouts au gratin at the mother in law's house for Thanksgiving. Basically they're cooked, then covered in a cream sauce and shredded cheese, then baked. It was WAY better than plain... otherwise, I have to cover them with butter and salt. They're definitely edible at that point. smile

Enjoyed a lot of tasty food(s), spent time with family & then went over the lady's house & spent the remainder of the evening with her & her two little boys. All in all, I had a lot of good food & enjoyed a nice, calm, relaxing evening.
