Brussels sprouts, originally uploaded by kitschenette.

I’m not usually a fan of these brassicas, but I saw them at the supermarket theother day and they looked so neat and fresh and crisp that I couldn’t resist. I lightly sauteed them in some butter with a squeeze of lemon juice and some salt and pepper until just browned and wilted at the edges, but still with some crunch. The slight bitterness was very, very good with a balsamic-seared pork chop and tiny tiny (think marble size) roasted new potatoes from the farm up the road.
