Green Chips?!

I just realized I haven't really posted much of anything lately other than foodles.  Who am I?  I am not much of a foodie, but one of my resolutions this year is to try new foods.  I am a chicken nuggets and mac and cheese kind of girl--mostly 2-5 year old foods suit me best.  Akin to a preschooler, I also do not like to try new things.  Especially in front of other people!  So last year I tried (and liked) hummus and edamame.  This is probably the most "trying" I have done about 10 years.  Wednesday, Margaret and I were Skyping while preparing dinner (btw, this is the BEST idea!).  She was peeling the leaves off brussel sprouts while I was making chicken and risotto.  Thanks to her, I have found a new food!  And it's green!!! (another huge accomplishment)

To make these super-easy brussel sprout chips, I peeled the leaves and tossed them in sea salt and pepper.  I baked them on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, flipped over the mostly green pieces, and baked them a little longer.  They are soooooo salty and are just like potato chips!  Hooray for a new food that is green!
