BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH WALNUTS, SESAME SEEDS AND THYME

Thyme

First of all I want to thank everyone who voted for me in the Food Blog Awards, thanks to you I am a proud ‘looser’ because the food blogs that won are really very good and fully deserve to win. And I got a lot of votes thanks to you! Of course I’d love to win but I also think that if I ever won it would very probably put me into a crisis, I would feel that I had to be up to it all the time and live up to people’s expectations. And that inevitably brings out that little obstinate 2 1/2 year old in me and that is not a pretty sight, I can tell you. So I am happy to potter around here on my own and have my own freedom to be good or bad when I want. I feel just happy to have been among the chosen 5! Thanks again!

So now I have to hurry on with the recipe, I need to finish a photo job today plus that we don’t have almost anything to eat in this house so my minutes here counted! Brussels sprouts again, yes but let’s enjoy them because they are good to eat and good for your body!
