Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

@Mike, was also tempted to do half and half sprouts & fingerling potatoes. Your and UM's variations sound excellent. And yes—brussels sprouts cooking totally remind me of Thanksgiving, even tho' my family has never had them as part of the day.
