Skillet Meal: Brussels Sprouts and Eggs

I’m getting tired of winter and winter vegetables. Is anyone else?

This is always the time of year that I start to lose my enthusiasm for vegetables and fruits that are only in season right now because they handle cold storage well. So, it’s time for a little extra creativity!

Inspiration

Do you ever get this vision in your head for just how you want something to look, but you can’t really put your finger on why? That’s how this project started out for me. I wanted BEAUTIFUL BRIGHT RED chairs for our kitchen table.

Oh, I had reasons, I suppose—I thought it would look nice, be fun and colorful, etc. But then an old memory came back to me and I realized that the rustic red look was more than just a fashion statement. Continue reading
