I want more Brussels Sprouts!

Thank you dear, sweet,  Lorrie for this wonderful recipe!
We made it as soon as you gave it to me and we gobbled it up!

My dear sweet friend, blogging friend/customer/daily checker upper on me, Lorrie, sent me this Vera Bradley Apron for my birthday in January. I wore it all evening as a "dress"!

Here is the recipe that Lorrie shared with me from her Cooking Light Magazine. I could not find it online so Lorrie gave it to me over the phone and I typed it out to send as an email to friends. It is weird, I always thought it was Brussel Sprouts but when I typed that it showed incorrect on auto correct. I looked it up and it is Brussels Sprouts like from Bussels!
