"We kids feared many things in those days - werewolves, dentists, North Koreans, Sunday School - but they all paled in comparison with Brussels sprouts." ~ Dave Barry
I'm a latter day fan of Brassica oleracea. Brussels sprouts. But I wasn't always.
Like the perenially understated Dave Barry, I feared them. Yuck! The smell alone...
But a few years ago I discovered that I actually loved them. Senile taste buds? Perhaps. Evolving appetite? Perhaps.
