I had the amazing opportunity to go to High School In Brussels, Belgium. My entire family moved there and man o man did we have the experience of our lives.
I went to the International School of Brussels. English was the primary language but other languages were taught and many cultures were incorporated into our education.
I had the rare opportunity to have dinner with one of my awesome friends from ISB last month in Santa Fe while she was here on business. She looks more amazing than ever and told me that she is in the midst of a brussels sprout obsession.
Tonight at the grocery store I tapped into that obsession and texted her for her fav reciepe and she came through...
We had a bigger crowd than usual last night - the usual 6 of us + my 10 year old had a friend over. They were a hit with EVERYONE adults and kids from 11 - 2. The Brussels sprouts were gone first - and I made a TON of them. Delicious recipe - one we'll eat again and again!!
