Brussels sprouts have always been the poster child of nasty vegetables. We were at Whole Foods today and they were selling a stalk of brussels sprouts for $4.99
And a closeup:
It was quick work for Ying to take off the sprouts. Later on in the evening, I noticed the bare stalk sitting on the counter.
I actually don't have anything personal against brussels sprouts myself. But man, the stalk of a brussels sprout is pretty massive. You could use it as a bat and threaten people with it! Consider yourself warned!
