Lazy Cheeks

brussels and bacon
Ya know, sometimes I just want to sleep in a little longer, take a week off of working out, cuddle up on my big fluffy couch and bury my nose in books and internet time!  Yup, it’s a bit lazy.  Yup, I can see the beautiful sunny day outside calling to me through the window.  But nope, I don’t care.  I’m fine right here on my couch, thank you very much.  On days like these, I don’t even bother putting on a bra. Wait!  Was that too much information?!!  **blush**  Oh my!  Errrrrr….. I’m gonna go now…
Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Bacon
I got this recipe off of the back of the bag of shaved brussels sprouts from Trader Joes!!  Go Trader Joes!!  Delish!!
1 10 oz bag Trader Joe’s Shaved Brussels Sprouts
2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 slices of bacon, chopped
Sea salt and pepper to taste
1 cup balsamic vinegar (although I was out and substituted with white
1/4 cup water
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the bacon and cook until very lightly browned about 3-5 minutes.  Add the sprouts and saute until slightly crisp and brown, about 5 minutes.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Pour in vinegar and water, cover with a lid and steam until tender, about 5 minutes more.

    I just grabbed a couple bags of the shaved brussel sprouts from Trader Joe’s and the reciepe calls for 1/4 cup balsamic, not a cup. I’m making it now and I’m sure it will be awesome!!
