A small Christmas miracle

I'd resigned myself to not having sprouts with Christmas dinner, but yesterday's rain and the high overnight winds melted and scoured away enough snow to expose my sprout plants this morning. The harvest was small, but supremely satisfying. To round things off to perfection, lake-effect snow (all the way from Lake Huron's Georgian Bay) was falling all morning.


Here's (part of) me modelling one of my presents from Mike:


He bought the 'large' size (for which he has not entirely been forgiven), but I think I approve of the sentiment...

Merry Christmas!

So glad you got to have your brussel sprouts for Christmas dinner ... dinner just isn't the same with brussels!

LOL I love the shirt. And what a great Christmas gift to get brussel sprouts.

Congratulations on the sprouts - ended up buying them as our plants seem to have developed some disease or other and withered away. Which meant that we only had peas from the garden for the Christmas table this year. And yes, great shirt! Merry Christmas!

Mmmm I love brussels sprouts steamed and then sauteed with a little butter and nutmeg. Sometimes I eat them for lunch, though my family doesn't appreciate the scent they leave in the house! Very, very funny t-shirt :)
