Spring seating ~

If you want the quickest way possible to perk up a drab patio & yard, add some of these colorful plastic chairs for a cheerful lift! Spring will be here before you know it so get ready for those patio parties and say "Welcome" with a chair bouquet.

MISO ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS



INGREDIENTS:


4 cups brussels sprouts, halved, stem removed
8 cloves of garlic, halved
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp miso paste
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1/2 lemon, zested
salt and pepper as needed




DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium mixing bowl toss the brussels sprouts and garlic with the olive oil and salt and pepper. Spread out on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 12-15 minutes until caramelized and tender.

While the brussels sprouts are roasting add the remaining ingredients into the mixing bowl and mix to combine to make the miso glaze.

Once the brussels sprouts are roasted and still hot add them into the mixing bowl and coat with the miso glaze by stirring until evenly dispersed. Serve immediately.

With spring comes bugs - BIG bugs!

OK, OK, I know that spiders aren't bugs (they are arachnids) but "Big Arachnids" didn't have quite the same ring to it. Here is another imaginative piece of residential yard art (well, in this case - ROOF ART) spotted by a follower. Note the golf club legs! This is the same house that has the robot mailbox and the dragons.... I guess the guy is an ex-golfer! Good way to reuse and recycle!
