Ridin’ off into the sunset

Well I practiced my new goal of trying something new. I came home with a Star Fruit and Brussels Sprouts.

I haven’t braved the Brussels Sprouts yet but I ate the Star Fruit tonight (after looking up how to do it, heh) and it was pretty tasty. It was a bit expensive for what you got but I’d guess they aren’t in season so much right now.

I read that they have lots of good nutrients so I’ll be adding those to my fruit bowl once I am gainfully employed or when they come down in price.

    Star fruit sounds fun and interesting. I’ll have to try it. Looking forward to your feedback on the brussel sprouts. We had them alot when I was a kid. I guess it wasn’t too bad but my DH has bad memories of it so we never have them nowadays… (LOL) as a joke, it’d be funny if I made them (fully knowing though that I’d be the only ones to eat them)

    I read a post that said to basically fix them I like I make my asparagus (I posted about my asparagus awhile back) so I’m hoping it’s all in the cooking!

    Star fruit is a little citrus-y and is a bit like eating the flesh of a watermelon as far as texture goes. There’s not really a good way to describe it though - it seemed fairly unique to me.
