I admit it...Brussels Sprouts are one of my favorite things!
And this fresh salad is no exception to the rule. Fresh ingredients and a wonderful blend of flavors makes for the perfect side dish or main dish.
I opt for nitrate-free bacon, Beelers is my bacon of choice, but not always available. It crisps up nicely in the oven (which is how I cook bacon for less mess) but also has a nice texture and taste.
I paired this with smoked chicken thighs in my Trager smoker. Took them about 2.5 hours on 220 to get to the perfect temp of 165.
My little piece of chicken had a funny little piece of skin hanging off of it--which I left for this picture because it reminded me of my own sagging skin in places. I like the imperfect. I celebrate differences. It is what makes us unique.
This meal was delicious.

HUMOR-IST (is that a word?) I can find and expel (the word expel makes me think of passing gas) humor in most moments of life
