Deep question of the day . . . why do brussel sprouts smell so bad when cooking? Oct 30 - 6

specialmom They don't taste as bad as they smell.  In fact, I made  stir fry with them and it was pretty delish . . . but my kids ran screaming and we had to air the house out!

AnnieBrooke I was going to say, it's not the sprouts that smell, it's the house after you cook them. They sure off-gas, don't they? The only ones that don't are those fresh out of the garden.

specialmom I don't think I've ever had fresh out of the garden ones!  Everything is better right out of the garden, isn't it?  OMG, do you GET gas from eating brussel sprouts? This would explain some things. ha

Trick is, cook them fast, or even shave them really fine and then they taste good raw. Recipes included in the above link.

AnnieBrooke Don't take your furnace for granted, you mean, unless it's the middle of the summer. Then take it for granted all you want, just don't take your a/c for granted. :)

specialmom AB, true.  I took my furnace for granted until the day we tried to turn it on for the first time of the season (when it went from 80 degrees to 28 in a day, no joke).

specialmom ha, pink cows are a delicious treat. Take a nice glass (fun to freeze it), put scoops of vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream in glass, pour Red Cream Soda or red pop over it.  Wa la, pink cow.  Use spoon to eat ice cream and straw to drink. It's a float

The kids and I have been making homemade sundaes after dinner. It’s nice after the triple digit weather we’ve been having this summer!

Cdtrsmom 3 years ago I decided to let my beautician color my hair. I only go once a year that's all I can afford. My hair is rather long. At tax time I let her trim it and color it. It looks terrible right now. Sure wish I could go have it done. April/May=Me time
