Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Pizza

yesterday was suppose to be the most depressing day of the year.  i won't say i was depressed but Monday took a lot out of me.  the day was gray and rainy.  work was long and hard. mr. j was gone.  it was a very long day and i am glad it is over.

tuesday is a whole new day.  a day that brings pizza. i am a bit obsessed with brussels sprouts right now.  strange because both my parents hate them.  they always make weird faces when i say we had them for dinner. mr. j also gave me a strange look when i came home from the grocery store with 3 bags this weekend.

no worries though.  i had big plans for these brussels sprouts. first up was this pizza. pizza with bacon, brussels sprouts and lots of cheese. if you had some monday blues, make this pizza. it will make all problems disappear. promise.
