Was hankering for middle eastern food all week. Tonight we had homemade lamb kofte with garlic yoghurt sauce, baba ghanouj, and arugula salad. Also, picked up some fresh pita and baklava from the Lebanese bakery. Yum!

Feeling a little home sick so I made a pot of okra and seafood gumbo and pralines for dessert.

Last night was my annual Halloween Parade party so supper was a buffet. My dad's hot stuffed peppers, my mom's chocolate cake, my sister's cucumber sandwiches, and my boss's pumpkin soup. I made Italian Wedding cookies, deviled eggs, some dips for chips and veggies, corndog bread, and the usual meat and cheese tray, salsa and chips, etc.
All the leftovers go to my sister's house tonight for Sisters sunday dinner.

spring, I made an enchilada casserole with Trader Joe's salsa verde mixed with sour cream, per your recommendation It was good, I think next time I'll add some lime juice for some more zing and something to add some spice. I diced up half of a small jalapeno but it really didn't add anything, so I'll have to try something else next time. Thanks for the suggestion!

Glad y'all liked it! It's definitely something that can be played with, I think I added pickled jalapenos when I made it.

Dinner last nite was steak with one of my favorite side dishes - roasted brussels sprouts, garlic, crumbled bacon, and toasted walnuts drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

I wish Mr. Spring would get on the brussels wagon. At least he tried.

Try to control your shock at what I'm about to say, but that didn't even work.

I'm just glad he gave them a try several times.

Spring, I think the problem may have been that you overwhelmed his sprouts-fearing palate. You have to start slow.
The Food Lab Thanksgiving Special: Brussels Sprouts Worth Eating | Serious Eats

Alternatively, I recommend shredded sprouts. They get very crispy and caramelized. And they don't look like sprouts.
Knife Skills: Brussels Sprouts | Serious Eats
It takes a really hot pan and not overcrowding it, and just a bit of practice, so it's not the easiest.
These aren't hard, though:
Recipe: Hashed Brussels Sprouts With Lemon Zest (HarperCollins, 1994) - New York Times

I also like separating the leaves and sautéing them with garlic and chili flakes, but I know that's tedious for most people.

I started off plain and simple...I even remember we lived in FL at the time when he first tried them. He was a trooper and ate them, but he didn't like them.

Then I tried just roasted in the oven and he didn't like that.

Then I tried the bacon and walnuts thing like Jeep is talking about and he wasn't crazy about it.

I have been wanting to try the shredded and since he's a good sport he'll at least give it a go. He really likes lemon so that may help a little!
