Brussels Sprouts with Callie!

So, I made a new 'bestie' this week... Callie! As soon as we started to pretend to eat each other's arms off, I knew we were developing an insta-bond! It's pretty incredible to spend time with an amazing tiny human that shares your experience... we were able to understand and connect with each other in ways related to the fact that we both have Stumps! Or as Callie puts it, a Junior Stump!

Our prints in the snow were like mirror images of each other!!!!!


Obviously we had to wear onesies, because it makes cooking even more fun! I highly recommend cooking in a onesie...

We might have had a little too much fun with the hand jokes...... but really, is there such thing as too many hand jokes when you've got two stumps in the house? I think not.

Callie was a natural with peeling, seasoning, and chopping with a really sharp knife! She was especially thrilled when we got to mix up the Brussels Sprouts with our little arms!!!!!

Friends for life :)

Here's the recipe we followed:

  • Preheat your oven to 400
  • A few cups of Brussels Sprouts, rinsed and chopped in half
  • Stick them in a bowl and season them with a few tablespoons of olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. 
  • Spread them out on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes (*AHEM* Not 30 minutes like we thought, hahahaha!) and take them out when you can pierce them with a fork and are starting to brown. 
  • ENJOY!
