Happy Friday! Even though I don’t celebrate Christmas, I look forward to it too! I like it when everyone has to slow down after a few long weeks of bustle and buying things. I’m ready for Christmas week. I hope you are too.
Cinnamon Cider Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pears
While reading one of my favorite sites this week, Emily posted a vegetable recipe using ingredients I had in my kitchen. I love it when that happens and I don’t need to buy one thing. I read it and reread it, but somehow still read one ingredient wrong. And I didn’t realize it until it was too late. Oh well! Here’s what happened:

I combined brussels sprouts, one apple, one pear, carrots, and snap peas on the stove and cooked them. My mistake was using apple cider vinegar instead of straight cider. It was kind of a big mistake and left my dish far more vinegar-y than it should have been! But I added some brown sugar to try to fix it and ate it anyway. It didn’t really get fixed. If you make it, use Emily’s instructions! The colors were very pretty together and it had a little sweetness and crunch too. A great way to get in so many fruits and vegetables in one meal!
