At a produce stand last Saturday, I bought a large stalk of brussel sprouts. I haven't had time to prepare them due to travel and work (yes I know it's very quick to roast them in the oven) but really, work has been killer. I won't have much time to cook tonight, and even so it's way too many sprouts for hubby & I to finish (about 6-8 servings of sprouts on one stalk). Then tomorrow we're gone again until next Tuesday (1.5 weeks after I bought the stalk). Will the sprouts last unrefrigerated? How about refrigerated (I might be able to clear space in the fridge). If they won't last until next Tuesday, should I stay up late to roast them all then store leftovers in the freezer?
It's not the roasting that takes time, it's the cleaning, trimming, etc. that makes me lazy about doing it all tonight. What to do?
