I`have been in a very reflective mood since just before Christmas last, when my soul mate passed away from the 2 year battle with cancer. As a child and right through my life, one of my favourite foods was...brussel sprouts. I loved them, and when they would come on special, I would buy them in 10 kg lots and eat them cold from the fridge for breakfast, morning tea, lunch and dinner, of course with other food as well. I was something about the strong taste that I adored. At the supermarket checkout, I would get comments about the amount I was buying, I would say things like, "Oh the kids have been misbehaving this week, so this is their punishment". My lovely wife hated them as much as I loved them, When I tried to hide one in her meal, even a couple of leaves, she would spot them and hand them back, there was no way I could get her to eat brussel sprouts. She would love, cheesecake, biscuits, chocolate any thing sweet and sugary. My lovely wife was a GP throughout her working life, and if I had a dollar for every time she said to me, "you will never die from bowel cancer, because you eat plenty of brussel sprouts", I would be a rich man. My lovely wife died 21/12/11 age 58 from... Bowel cancer. Oh the irony R I P my lovely girl wombat4
