Spinach, maple-roasted brussel sprouts, caramelized onions, dried cranberries, goat cheese, and balsamic vinegar. So good.

Maple-Roasted Brussel Sprouts:

Rinse 1 cup brussel sprouts, cut each sprout in half.
Drizzle with 1 tsp olive oil, 1 TB maple syrup, and place on baking sheet sprayed with Pam.
Roast at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until tender, flipping once after 10 minutes.
