If there are brussels sprouts on the menu, you best believe I’m going to order them! Here’s how to make restaurant-style Brussels Sprouts at 🏠 thanks to @testkitchen! ✨How To Make Really Very Good Stovetop Brussels In About Ten Minutes Start with about a pound, maybe less, of Brussels Sprouts - cut in half. In a large cold skillet, add five tablespoons of olive oil. Seems like a lot, but it’s just right. Add the brussels 🌱 to the cold oil in the cold pan - as many cut side down as you can. Place over medium-high heat. Cover with a tight fitting lid. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes. The brussels will brown and steam at the same time. It’s brilliant. Remove the lid. Reduce the heat to medium. Toss the sprouts around the pan for another 4 to 5 minutes, until browned to your 💛’s content. Remove from heat. Add an aggressive amount of flaky sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper, 🍋 juice, chopped parsley, chopped capers if you have em… and parmesan cheese. Grab a 🍴. Dang, ya did good.

Truth is, I still have powdered sugar on my sweater from my own doughnut making attempts this morning. Threw in the towel. Came for the real deal. Shame in my game? None.

When my dad was a kid he had a dream of converting his family garage into a bird coop for homing pigeons. He knew where he wanted to put their perches, where he wanted to store their food, and which neighborhood friends would help him train the birds. His mom said no. Like very much no way- no... and that was that. I reminded my dad that he has his own garage now and that my mom wants to get a turtle and they should just live their weird pet dreams. Then we went to get cheeseburgers at the stand he's been going to forever and ever, we ordered too many fries, and that was that- amen.

One Monday a month I invite my self-employed friends over for weekday brunch. We end up draped around the table with mugs of coffee and and a simple offering like this breakfast @dietzandwatson charcuterie plate paired with spicy shakshuka to talk about what's on our minds and in our weeks. I recommend we all take some time when we can get it. choosethetable

I tried my hand at Cincinnati Chili on the site today and sure, you can try to tell me I didn't grate the cheese finely enough or put the onions in the right place but I'm here to tell you I ate this whole bowl with zero problems.
