Girl Detective

Maybe it's just the third grader in me, but asafetida always makes me snicker--fetid ass, heh heh.

Juvenilia aside, this looks delish. I don't think I had to suffer sprouts as a kid, there weren't really on my radar until I had them roasted in restaurants and loved them. Nick and Eddie had a stunning preparation with them last fall.

I made them for a holiday dinner, though, and was bummed--they were full of little bugs and I had to go way into them to get rid of the bugs. It took a lot of prep time, and I thought maybe it's one of those foods for me that's best left to the restaurant professionals.
