One of our favorite veggies to have with dinner is brussels sprouts. I'm not kidding... my oldest son practically begs for them at the store. I had never had them until about 3 years ago when he was in preschool and they talked about them for the letter 'B'. That week, he said we had to eat them. We did and the rest is history. They are simple to make, the hardest part is quartering them. But you can always do that during the day, or nap time, and finish the rest while you're making dinner.
