@mhrackin: ...carefully hand-tended as they grow, and free-range at that!

It's been a long time since I ate a free-range sprout :-)

By another strange coincidence (which seems to happen quite often in the Sprouts world), in the past few months, a new chain of fancy groceries of the produce persuasion has opened 4 stores in the Atlanta area.  The name is "Sprouts" and although I haven't visited any yet, my wife can hardly wait, and thus we will do so in the near future.  I suspect they have a grand selection of their namesake vegetables, all completely organic and carefully hand-tended as they grow, and free-range at that!  I expect to see bean (of many varieties), Brussels, alfalafa, and varieties unimagined before.  I will report back upon completion of the excursion.  This thread will NEVER die as long as there are sprouts to discuss, prepare, and enjoy!

@Max: Oooh -- you are giving your age away LOL

There's no way you can tell how old I am just by something I wrote on the internet.  I'm so sure.  Like no way! Plus I cannot possibly give my age away since I plan on selling it to the highest bidder.  Ha!

@seaEE: I can only quote Mark Twain "There are only liars, damned liars, and statisticians."

I have a great book here in the office on my shelves: "How to Lie with Statistics"

I happened once again on this mighty thread devoted to the mighty sprout, which has inspired both hearty approbation and insidious odium from those with strong passions concerning vegetable choice.  The coincidence is that I did have a substantial quantity of Brussels Sprouts with my lunch today.  They were not among the royalty of recipes for this polarizing member of the plant world, as they were served from a steam table and were, to be charitable, a bit overcooked.  In any case, I did manage to consume the lot, but without great relish as our cafe provides only the essentials: salt, pepper, mayonnaise, and sriracha sauce-- no relish.

I was blissfully ignorantly heading into what seemed like a great weekend, and then....and then I was blindsided by this sprout (that horrid vegetable) thread before I had a chance to hit the accelerator and speed by it.  Gag me with a spoon!  Okay, so there is a graph that shows "sprout' is showing up more in the written press, so I can only quote Mark Twain "There are only liars, damned liars, and statisticians."  Speaking of Twain, I bet the reason Huckleberry Finn was really rafting down the Ol' Mississippi was to get as far way from brussel sprouts as possible.  But back to the graph.  I have a sneaking suspician that the blip in the graph is due soley to the several pages of press the lowly sprout has received in this thread, much like Bon Jovi's Living on a Sprout er, I mean, a Prayer got a boost from this performance (a good song by the way):

Soon Max will have the whole world eating sprouts! :)
