Before we talk about today’s easy side dish, I have news to share.
Ta Da! This blog post will be my 1011th! Can you imagine?
Not only am I celebrating that milestone, I’m honored to say that Mother Rimmy’s has been nominated as one of Skinny Scoop’s Top 25 Healthy Eating Blogs. I hope you’ll get a chance to hop on over to Skinny Scoop and vote for me.
Okay – enough celebrating. Time for a brussels sprouts recipe!
There was a time when brussels sprouts would never had entered the house, much less have a place at the dinner table.
But times have changed, and we’ve become fans of this affordable vegetable – despite the rather unpleasant smell that permeates my small home.
The other night, instead of the roasting treatment my brussels sprouts usually get, I decided to thinly slice them, then dump them into my pan with a handful of meaty mushrooms and sun dried tomato.
We called this a side dish success for my newly beloved brussels sprouts. If you have extra calories for the day, be sure and top this dish with a shaving of nutty Parmesan cheese.
Happy, healthy cooking!
