Brussels Sprouts


Brussels Sprouts in my Sketchbook

I was ready to cut these in quarters, toss them with olive oil, garlic, and walnuts, and roast them. However - they were just calling out to be painted.

If you haven't tried them roasted like this - oh my gosh! Even if you don't like Brussels sprouts, you'll like these. If you have never painted them - try it. You'll like that too!

MORE snow today! Another class cancelled. During the class time I made a pot of coffee, cranked up Pandora, and worked on my year-end evaluation. Chris Guillebeau of The Art of Non-Conformity has some interesting evaluation and planning strategies - a little over the top for some of us maybe - I don't plan to visit 20 or more countries this coming year, but there are lots of interesting things on his blog.

That's it for my day - Brussels sprouts and year-end evaluations. I miss my students!!!

I love your posts... never know if they are going to inspire me to paint or to cook. I have only had Brussel sSprouts onece and hated them but this sounds tempting. Have you considered doing an illustrated cookbook?

The brussell sprouts are adorable and sound so tasty! An illustrated cookbook would be grand.
Sorry to hear about the snow . . . today I saw a Salvation Army "Santa" wearing shorts - I think it got up to 70 here in AZ. But there's a lot of good things to be said for snow at Christmas!
Your year-end evaluation is inspiring! Thanks

Love your brussel sprouts - and the recipe sounds great too. Also enjoyed the fact when I checked out your reference to the nonconformity blog, found out the author was from right here, Portland. Sometimes it seems like a very small world. Thanks for your posts, I always look forward to them!
