Looks like Christmas

In Santa Fe, a common question asked by servers in restaurants is, "Red or Green or Christmas?" They are asking about chile sauce, but when I tried this recipe, Buttery Brussels Sprouts with Sage, Dried Cranberries and Pecans, I was conditioned to see the red plumped up cranberries and bright green brussels sprouts as Christmas.

Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries and PecansYou can click the link above for the recipe, but the name pretty much says it all. I decided to try it because I happened to have all the ingredients on hand.  The cranberries and brussels sprouts are an unexpected, interesting combination.

I think it would be a nice side dish for the upcoming holidays.  The author suggests adding cooked quinoa and shredded chicken to turn it into a light meal.  It could be a good candidate for what to do with leftover Thanksgiving turkey.

This looks so good, unfortunately I haven't been able to eat brussels sprouts since my mother cooked them. They were always overcooked and mushy and the smell was over powering. My son often bakes them and his family like them this way. Not me, I can't overcome my memories.

It looks delicious, Sophie, and I've never liked brussel sprouts!
Thanks for sharing.

Am I the only one thinking that Spam might be divine in it.
