On a brighter note, I made the brussels sprouts from my first post again tonight, this time cutting the recipe in half (7 brussels sprouts is plenty for 1 person) but only using a fourth of the brown sugar. They were perfect! Not too sweet, but nicely browned, and the salt and brown sugar makes for a great combo. Oh, and I love the crunch the pecans provide. Hooray for good, guilt-free food!
