And here's Kiley's sister Kendall. She's learning to walk, but she doesn't walk, she runs!
Thursday morning we had fun prepping food and watching the Macy's parade. We ate at noon and all of the food was delicious as usual.

For the Brussels sprouts, Mike found a recipe on allrecipes.com that he thought might go over better than the regular little cabbage heads. So I made Shredded Brussels Sprouts. I modified it just a tad because the original recipe called for pine nuts and I didn't have any. They were actually very tasty!
Shredded Brussels Sprouts
1/2 pound sliced bacon
1/4 cup butter
2 pounds Brussels sprouts, shredded ( I used the slicing attachment on my food processor for this)
3 green onions, minced
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Cook bacon until crisp, drain, and reserve 2 tbls grease, crumble, and set aside.
Melt butter in the pan with the bacon grease over medium heat. Add the Brussels sprouts and green onions to the pan, season with the salts and pepper. Cook over medium heat until the sprouts are wilted, about 10 - 15 minutes. Stir in crumbled bacon right before serving.
