It is almost time for all the apples and brussels sprouts!! So why not combine them together with some butter and cinnamon? I’ve heard before that things that grow together go together, so I love combining seasonal produce because it always works! And speaking of apple season coming soon, I have always wanted to go apple picking. It isn’t a common thing out in southern california but there are still some apple orchards around that do it and it sounds so wonderful! I am sure Ruth would love it too, yay for family outings!
So I have teamed up with Ocean Mist Farms once again to highlight their amazing produce, this time brussels sprouts! Now we all know Ocean Mist is all about the artichoke game because they are the largest producer in the US, but they have way more than artichokes! From brussels sprouts to broccoli to cauliflower to all the leafy greens – they do it all. Brussels Sprouts were my FAVE veggie and when I got pregnant I couldn’t stomach any veggies especially brussels. As my pregnancy went along I could eat greens in salads but still didn’t love brussels like I used to – thank goodness that is over!! Now I am back to loving them and so happy about it. Do you love brussels too??
