Christmas week this year featured many scrumptious dishes, mostly prepared by my dad. The first night though, was my turn to cook. My grandma (Gee-Gee as the kids call her) was in town from Kansas, and I found out that she is an avid reader of my blog (thanks Grandma!). We had so much fun hanging out, and the kids really enjoyed getting to know her again.
We took advantage of the nice weather and had a little batting practice before dinner.
I prepared a mouth-watering apple butter pork loin with coconut rice on the side. My mom made the meal complete with our favorite roasted brussels sprouts. I know what you’re thinking, NO ONE likes brussels sprouts! Well, I challenge you to try them prepared this way before you totally give up on this vegetable. C’mon, just one little taste!
