ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH MAPLE GLAZE

I celebrated a birthday last month and The Professor really hit it out of the park this year; we were supposed to make a trip to the East Coast but sometimes life just doesn’t cooperate like we think it should. My guy still made the entire weekend really special with tickets to the theater, a bouquet of handmade paper flowers, an overnight visit from my sister-in-law and dinner at Cerulean Restaurant in Indianapolis – somewhere we hadn’t visited before.

The Professor and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary last month; and while we don’t normally celebrate the usual ‘Hallmark greeting card’ days like Valentine’s day et al, we do plan something special for our anniversary. It’s not that we poo-poo celebrations, it’s just that we seem to celebrate each day we have with one another – taking the time to sit on the deck watching the birds at our feeders, listening to a piece of music or sipping coffee while watching a sunrise in complete silence – those are moments worth celebrating throughout each day, each month throughout the year.

KIMCHI BRUSSEL SPROUTS

Oh Kimchi, where have you been all my life??! Living in the Midwest doesn’t allow for many¬†‘international’ choices on the food front; and even though I spent most of my early years on the West Coast, I have to admit Kimchi was no where on my radar – the pungent odor can be off-putting and anything fermented (outside of sauerkraut) seemed scary. Needless-to-say, when The Kimchi Cookbook arrived in my mailbox, I was a teensy bit skeptical as well as major apprehensive.
