Smoky Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I like brussels sprouts and usually prepare them roasted with a sprinkle of salt. Violet and E are not fans so I thought I'd try a bacon like version to peak their interest. Who doesn't love meat candy? Since I was trying to keep it simple and veggie, I added a sprinkle of liquid smoke and a generous drizzle of maple syrup.

Oven Roasted Smoky Maple Brussels Sprouts

1/2 lb brussels sprouts
maple syrup (to taste)
liquid smoke (to taste)
salt and pepper (to taste)
1 tsp. olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat brussels sprouts with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with liquid smoke and a tablespoon of maple syrup. Toss and serve or put back in the oven to broil for about 30 seconds. I like a lot of crispy charred leaves on mine.

It's not uncommon for me to forget key ingredients and remember it once I've started cooking. Well on this day, I had all my ingredients for the main course, Tilapia Puttanesca, but no side dish. Once I hit the grocery store for the week I don't like to go back so I picked up sprouts at the Walgreens Food Oasis.

My local Walgreens has fresh food items like fruit, vegetables, sandwiches, and sushi and I'm glad. It's very convenient to grab a pre-prepped fresh food item when I'm short on time.

While I was there, I also picked up the photos I ordered days ago via the Walgreens Mobile App. Since my mom doesn't live close by or use the internet very often she doesn't get to see V as much. I print photos for her periodically.

The Walgreens mobile app saves me time by allowing me to scan through my phone or Facebook photos, choose a few of my favorites, and have them printed in store all while watching a movie!

Being able to get so much out of one store is so valuable to me plus I'm earning those Balance Rewards! I'm able to knock out a few errands with one trip and get around to the fun stuff that Violet and I like to do. I can come back home and have a healthy, fresh meal ready in 30 minutes or less.

I think I might need to try Brussels Sprouts now! If only I had a Walgreens Oasis store too!
