Brussel sprouts, a recipe for you, and a new commission
Brussel Sprouts $285.00 12"x12" oil on 1" cradled boardAh, Thanksgiving! Food as far as my eyes could see. Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, and, oh, the pies! The only hiccup was that I still had to eat my vegetables. At the Thanksgiving table in 1986, I discovered my dislike of Brussels sprouts. I remember getting caught passing off my sprouts to my uncle. Fast forward 25 years and I find myself invited to a friend's house for dinner. Lo and behold, Brussels sprouts are on the menu. With a glass of wine to soften the blow, I take my helping like a grown-up. Much to my surprise, I actually like them! It was merely the way they were prepared I didn't care for. Broil them with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper, and I'm there! You don't even have to promise me pie anymore. — Heather Hamann Yummy Brussel Sprouts
