My name is Alana (Lana) and I am here to spread the joy of LIFE through family, food and love! I am a Play at home mom of our beautiful daughter, Zoey Mae and our handsome little man Paxton Creed. I am married to my best friend who I have been with since Jan 2007 (married on 8-9-10) My mission for this blog is to share our everyday life here in the Pennewell household! Thanks for stopping by and share the LOVE with others!
YUMMMMM!!! That is what I have to say about Brussel sprouts!! I have to admit I had NEVER had a Brussel sprout until I was an adult.....actually last year was the first time lol My mom says she HATED them so she never made us eat them. I always thought "wow they must be horrible" So why on earth did I get a wild hair up my ass and decide to make them I will never know. But BOY AM I GLAD I DID! I love them and so does my husband! He had actually had them before but never like them! Until I made them... :) SO here is the quick, simple, easy side dish you can pair with almost anything! Oh and PS I made these for my mom and she loves them too! I also make an aioli sauce to go with them so I will share that as well! You're welcome! :)
I mean come on, how delicious do they look?! ^^^^
Buy whole Brussels sprouts from the produce section
First Cut in half
Then into quarters
throw them onto a baking sheet and drizzle with EVOO or coconut oil
Season with LOTS of S&P and a little garlic powder!
Bake at 375 for about 25 minutes flipping half way through
Thats it! .
How amazing do they look paired with my home made Cole slaw and my husbands ribs?!
If you have never tried them before PLEASE try them!!
I know most of us struggle with the daily (3-6 times a day) battle of getting our little ones to eat and to eat mostly healthy options! My 20 month old LOVES to eat. If she isn't eating she is asking to eat! So I have had to find and come up with tons of different snack and meal ideas to satisfy her needs! :) She will let me know when she does not agree with something given. But I have to say if I keep giving it to her she will usually warm up to it! She has recently decided to actually try a few new things! And we all know, NOTHING makes us happier than when our child tries a new food.... and likes it! :) This will be a continuing blog, I will be adding pictures as the days go by! I will start with her meals from just the last few days! If you have any questions about any of the meals or what brand or how it is prepared please do not hesitate to ask! :) I do not always buy organic or 100% real food, but I do TRY MY BEST and that is all we can do! :)
