Potatoes Sautéed with Brussel Sprouts, Bacon & Leeks.

Saturday 5th November 2011

After a carnivorous couple of weeks I felt it was time to get back to my roots & make a pseudo-vegetarian meal.

“Jonathan…do you want brussels?” Mum used to shout from the kitchen.

“No thanks.” I’d shout back from the sofa.

“I’ll put a couple on your plate & if you don’t want them, don’t eat them.” She’d reply.

I used to hate brussels as a kid. Mum used to always put them on the plate & they would be returned to the kitchen without being touched.

She was pretty cool about the whole thing really. Never once forcing me to eat any of them. It was more of a subliminal approach I think. But it must have worked because I love them now.

Thankfully my son, Zephyrus, isn’t like me when I was a child & chomps down his baby cabbages with gusto.

About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    I was/am like you in that regard: I HATED Brussels sprouts as a kid (and I wasn’t a picky child; I ate darn near anything, but I just couldn’t gag those despicable things down [along with Lima beans; I simply could NOT eat them]) – but now, I kind of like them, IF they have been roasted with some onion or garlic. I think it’s the carmelization coupled with the roasty alliums…. mmmmm. 🙂

    I love these too…I think I struggled with them too as a child, especially the over boiled school dinner version!
