Weeknight Skillet Supper

Weeknight Skillet Supper

Brussels sprouts, bacon, apples and pumpkin seeds. I recently decided to make a concerted effort to drop a few pounds by avoiding most foods made with flour (bread, pasta,snack foods, baked sweets, cereal), potatoes and sugar. Luckily I enjoy novel food combinations and a wide variety of vegetables! Tonight I threw this together and even with no seasoning at all, it was delicious.
4 slices bacon, cut into quarters
3-4 c Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced or shredded
1 medium apple, cored and sliced
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds
In a deep skillet or sauté pan, fry bacon until not quite crispy. Add the shredded Brussels sprouts and apples and continue cooking over medium heat until apples start to soften and Brussels sprouts start to brown. Remove and toss with seeds. It really doesn’t need anything else, but if I were to suggest anything other than salt and pepper, it would be just a hint of maple syrup drizzled over it. If this doesn’t make you love these oh-so-good-for-you baby cabbage-y things, nothing will.

Embracing both the hard scrabble self sufficiency and resilience of my ancestors and the burgeoning Information Age to help make family experience richer, healthier and happier. Maturity does not mean I cannot approach every day with the same excitement I felt as I swung my skinny legs over my bike on a summer morning, bag lunch in my basket, for a day of riding and hiking the woods and fields around my home in upstate New York or went blackberry picking in the heavy cicada song drenched afternoons at my grandmother's in Kentucky. Let's explore!
