“You know what charm is: a way of getting the answer yes without having asked any clear question.”
Here’s a look at a surprisingly simple-to-prepare meal that Meesus TTP and I (ok, mostly her) put together a few nights back. She soaked these babies in a brine marinade overnight the night before we put them in the broiler. Meesus is ramping-up her foodie blog at the moment, and once she’s done, she’ll post the recipe (and I’ll post the link). For now, though, just take a look at how these things turned out.
She braised a good sized bunch of Brussels sprouts as a side. The topping you see on them here is bacon, which she fried-up before hand, using the rendered grease, then (along with some other added ingredients) as the braising medium. She’ll have this recipe up on her blog as well.
Add a smattering of fruit, and you’ve got a fabulous and, really, pretty damn easy meal to put together.
