Belated Happy Thanksgiving

Happy belated Thanksgiving! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are in a pseudo food coma today!

We had a great one yesterday.  My brothers hosted at their apartment yesterday and we had fun.  My brother, Chris, is the turkey genius.  He likes to debone the turkey first and then bake it.  It's always wonderfully juicy and flavorful.  He also makes a homemade cranberry sauce and gravy.  It's soooo delicious.

My sister made the green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and ambrosia salad.  My other brother was the pie man and he also made a green bean casserole.  I ended up making a HUGE pan of stuffing, a huge pan of sweet potatoes and my delicious bacon brussel sprouts.  And OMG.  The sprouts were to die for! To DIE FOR.  LOL.

Bacon and Brussel Sprouts

My brussel sprouts are super easy to make!

  • Three pounds of brussel sprouts.
  • One pound of bacon.
Trim the brussel sprouts (take off that nasty hard stem), cut in half and peel off any loose leaves.  Wash and set aside.
Dice the bacon and fry it in a large skillet.
When the bacon is cooked fully and to your liking (I like mine between too chewy and too crispy.)
Remove the bacon (but leave the grease!) in a bowl and set aside.
Put the brussel sprouts in the large skillet, lower the heat and put the lid on.  
I like the sprouts to be a browned and to the point that when you stir them, they start to fall apart because they are so nice and soft. 
When done, add the bacon and sautee for a few stirs.
All done! 

I don't add any other seasonings because the bacon does it all for you.  You can always salt, pepper, use balsamic vinegar, etc.  You can church it up however you want.  I love it how it is.  

Of course, my turkey butt was soooo happy.  She was so excited!

We ended our day watching Star Wars.  Ha Ha.

How was your Thanksgiving? What was your favorite dish? What do you all do after pigging out eating?
