Happy Saint Patty's Day

   Here is a green side dish to serve up this Saint Patrick's Day.  I remember growing up hating brussel sprouts but have since acquired a taste for them.  I mentioned to my kids that we would be having brussel sprouts as our green food for Saint Patrick's Day, and was met with sighs and gestures of finger down the throat.
    I chose to make this recipe because it isn't like most.  It contains ingredients that my kids love--- bacon, and apples; mix that with this green veggie and maybe, just maybe, they would eat it.

And guess what?  They ate it all up!  Everyone of my kids gave it a thumbs up and several asked for seconds.  How about that!   I tasted it and really enjoyed it.  The recipe is called Brussels sprouts with bacon and apples .  I didn't add the red wine vinegar, but that was only because I know that my kids aren't wild about vinegar.

Happy St. Patty's Day!
