Well a friend of mine is coming for dinner and brought over brussel sprouts. Well I love em but are really exspensive right now, so I havent had them in a long time. So I wanted to do something differentI also had these two blood oranges I wanted to use. Seeing as the blood oranges are available for such a short time also wanted to do something different with them. Thats how my brussel sprouts w/blood orange sauce were created!
Just the right amount of a citrus bite, not too over powering!
