----maybe it's the rainy weather, but I've been getting creative in the kitchen lately.
I used to hate Brussell Sprouts. Our mothers used to just throw them into boiling water and the smell was horrific ! I like these.
Sweet and Sour Brussell Sprouts
3/4 lb brussell sprouts
1 TBL olive oil
1 tsp 'Splenda' or sugar
1/4 cup golden raisins
1 tsp butter
2 TBL flavored vinegar
2TBL chopped walnuts
dash salt and pepper
Rinse Sprouts, pat dry, cut off bottoms, cut in half lengthwise and cut out core.
Tear apart into leaves and small pieces.
Heat oil in Wok until water drops sizzle, throw in sprouts and sprinkle with 'Splenda' and toss till color 'brightens.
Add butter and toss.
Throw in raisins.
Let vinegar steam off a bit.
Sprinkle with walnuts.
This will hold for several hours. Just heat throught and toss before serving.
Substitute Dried Cranberries for Raisins
Pine nuts for walnuts
DON'T FORGET TO MOVE TO THE BOTTOM AND FEED THE FISH BEFORE YOU LEAVE !!!
