@SuperSkeptic: Unfortunately, she often omitted one critical element: turning the burner OFF before the water all boiled away!

Many years ago, I had just started dating someone in England. She had two young daughters who were 7 and 9 at the time. One day I was invited round to supper -- the youngest daughter stuck her head thriough the door and said "we're going to play with the kids next door" -- her mom replied "how will you know when your supper's ready?" and the kid immediately responded "we'll smell it burning" LOL

...was "barbecuing" vegetables long before the current trend.  She used to put them in a saucepan, add some water, and turn on the burner.  This worked particularly well with cruciferous veggies like Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, etc.  Unfortunately, she often omitted one critical element: turning the burner OFF before the water all boiled away!  Being a frugal household, we were expected to consume them regardless.... all the while "enjoying" the aroma concentrated in our small eat-in kitchen.

@mhrackin: See the resemblance???

I don't know why, but that little figurine makes me happy -- I want one for my desk (it could hang out with my "Big Bang Theory" bobble heads :-)

@max: "...Little Green Sprout":

Well, that sounds like a perfect description of the typical Brussels one.... IIRC, his head bore a strong resemblence to one!

@mhrackin: ...wasn't the Jolly Green Giant's sidekick a little "kid" vegetable named "Sprout"?

I think his full name was "Little Green Sprout"

Re The Sprout: wasn't the Jolly Green Giant's sidekick a little "kid" vegetable named "Sprout"?  Nobody brought that up on the Sprout blog IIRC!

@mhrackin: It may be time to start resuscitating the Mighty Sprout as well.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
