    Steamed brussels sprouts are OK, but I think roasting brings out the best flavor. Needless to say, you need to start with fresh sprouts. They go fast in my house, so I buy 'em by the quart.

    Dude, I was 270 when I decided to buy a carbon-fiber Specialized Roubaix. The only gotcha you might run into is the wheels, but if I had it to do over, I would have kept the factory wheels. Thanks...
