A GOOD MISTAKE
It was a late Saturday afternoon. The fall sun was casting an orange glow thru the trees in the backyard. College football was on the TV. We missed our kids. We needed comfort food.
Now you understand why I would have never made it as novelist.... LOL
But we really did want something good to fill our tummies, so I thought of "Southern Plate's" steak and gravy. ( http://www.southernplate.com/2008/09/southern-steak-and-milk-gravy.html ) (you'll find the recipe at the bottom of this post )
And...mmmmm..."Adventure of Kitchen Girl's" oven roasted brussel sprouts ( http://kitchengirljo.blogspot.com/2008/09/oven-roasted-brussles-sprouts.html ).
So I decided to make them.
Now... I must confess, that I put the brussel sprouts in the oven, started the steak and then got a phone call. It was the brussel sprouts who suffered. You might look at these and say "poor little cremated sprouts", but before you do...let me tell you, they were really good. crispy and a bit crunch and...well, really good. I must also confess that I didn't prepare as many as the recipe said...just my husband and I, so I was downsizing, but didn't downsize the cooking time.
My husband pulled off the outer layer and proclaimed them "really good" also.
But I didn't get a picture of those.
For a REALLY GOOD idea of what they look like please visit Jo's blog.
She is the Brussel Sprout master.
I'm thinking of having the same exact meal on Sunday!
The Steak....oh the steak and gravy. mmmmm.....good. So easy, so tasty, so....comforting. We really liked it. And I made enough so that we had leftover the very next night. (hard to cook for just two without leftovers, you know)
Christy, over at "Southern Plate" made this a couple of weeks ago, and I had to try it.... I have to tell ya...it was a HUGE HIT at my house.

I'm not going to put the recipes here in my post, I'll let you check out the originals on the original blogs. But I do have to say that I love those two blogs, and if you ever need a good meal idea...seek them out.
and again...forgive the charred brussel sprouts, but they were actually good. Or, I'm weird. Could be. But check out Jo's, as they were great! :~) http://kitchengirljo.blogspot.com/
Looking good before going into the oven....and then for some reason I hid all the gravy "under" the steak.
