Brussel Sprouts.

I posted this a long time ago somewhere but I feel that at this time of year I should impart my wisdom on y'all.
The correct way to cook Brussel Sprouts. Pay attention now, this is very impportant...

Heat large pan of water, copper bottom is always best, no matter what anyone tells you
add salt.
Add brussel sprouts when water is boiling.
Cook for ten minutes until sprouts soften slightly.
Mutter the words 'al dente' under your breath.
Turn off water.
Open bottle of chilled white wine, drink bottle of chilled white wine, watch film, have sex, whatever tickles your fancy.
Continue to ignore sprouts.
Drain water and throw sprouts away following day.

Absolutely foolproof.

What kind of self respecting dog likes sprouts more that venison? Either way, I stand firm, they are minging.
Right, must go, it's card night here and the booze is a flowing. I can scarcely see this fucking computer screen, let alone keep a poker face. Sheesh.

Damn brassicas... they should go straight from the veg shop to the compost heap. Why be a middle'man', why waste the gas / electric?

Why buy them at all? Why grow them at all? When I am Queen -and after the gum and thong bans- I shall outlaw sprouts and cabbage.

The reason that you should take a look at a Joana's Star - Craft 2 guide review is obvious. You must, however, practice auto-rotations at the flying field with the help of an instructor. As with most of the electronics, the main enemy of golf simulator is the dust. 3) Physical parameters: The simulators are almost real, but actually they are on the ground, I mean around the sea level.

Still the health concerns mar the overall positive
sides of this economic growth as people take their health problems as the cost of development which is indeed pretty higher.

It can also be left in the hair as a conditioner but it may be hard to explain the
tomatoes. Black hair has a distinctive composition that makes it sensitive to breakage.
Yet, lack of moisture can also cause breakage,
split-ends and brittle hair. 5 ml Kalonji Oil mixed
at a hot drink after supper gives a quiet sleep all during the night.
