BBQ Brussels Sprouts? Huh?

Ok. So winter doesn't have many super duper vegetables so they flaunt the ones that they have. I've been watching trends, and it would seem that that the lowly brussels sprout is very popular at this time of year.

Most of you know that I don't sleep well or much, so I'm required to talk a lil something to get me to sleep. that lil something also makes me HONGRY. I think this nighttime eating has led me to brussels sprout perfection:

Begin with a bag of frozen sprouts in a steam fresh bag. microwave for 2 minutes. in a pan heat a teaspoon of basil olive oil. (or just olive oil has worked). pour in par cooked sprouts and add salt and Worcestershire black pepper. don't a chef! flip those things!!! when they are starting to have some golden brown spots add about a tablespoon of honey and a table spoon of balsamic vinegar. I've been known to add a tablespoon of Ubon's...but how could I not. time I find people who like these little sprouts i'm going to try them out. for now, it's my new favorite food.
