Early Morning Brussels

by Cait on January 16, 2012

This morning I put on a pot of coffee and got busy in the kitchen!

I had pan-roasted brussel sprouts on my mind and nothing was going to change that.

Not even the early morning hour.

So I chopped them up, drizzled them with olive oil and salt and popped ‘em in the oven!

Pecans + brussel sprouts is a match made in heaven.  Never let anyone tell you otherwise.

These will most certainly be my lunch.  Whether or not I add anything else to them is TBD…

Happy Monday people!

Cait, I love your photos! Your cup of java always looks so frothy and delicious! Have you ever used a hand held frother? I used it the other day for my coffee and I thought of you because it seems you really enjoy coffee! Basically, you just warm about a 1/4c of milk in the microwave and use the frother to whip the milk. I then pour the foamed milk into my coffee and you have a frothy, fluffy homemade latte!

I have! I actually have one but have kind of gotten away (I think I over-frothed a bit!). But that reminds me that I should pull it out again for a treat!

Nothing like putting on a pot of coffee and spending the afternoon baking/cooking away. Sounds wonderful.

I’m glad I’m not the only crazy one who roasts veggies before the sun comes up. This morning I was roasting potatoes and squash.
