We’ve been doing deliveries from Imperfect Foods for a little while now. We don’t get to choose everything that comes in the box but whatever we get we try and use. This latest shipment came with some Purple Brussels Sprouts. Allison made them up with some Italian Sausages. Purple Brussels Sprouts are a bit milder than the regular green ones. I don’t get the weird Brussels Sprouts burps like I do wen I have the green ones. She roasted these up on the new grill and they came out really nice. Next time they go in the air fryer and get mixed with some of the bacon ends and pieces that we get from Imperfect foods, too.

Mother’s Day 2020

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. Around here Allison had a nice day that started off with breakfast made by Andy plus some Dunkin Donuts Coffee. I’ll go there if it is a special occasion because my choice is always Honey Dew and Allison’s first choice is always Dunkin. So, for Mother’s Day I figured that Dunkin would be the better choice. The kids gave Allison some very nice cards. She went with them on a long walk today while I slept.

When I woke up I grilled up some very tasty steaks for dinner. I had picked them up over at the Chartley Country Store on Friday. I am very pleased with the new grill. The whole searing burner is perfect. One minute on that for each side and then a couple of minutes per side on the regular burners and we had some perfectly grilled steaks. After dinner the kids made Allison an ice cream sundae and Andy did a hand and foot massage. I’m not sure how relaxing that was.
