What the hell do I do with this vegetable: Brussels sprouts edition

A little late posting this, but Fair Foods had Brussels sprouts the week of Thanksgiving. Perfect!

Brussels sprouts are one of those things I like when prepared by people who are into cooking, or when they show up at catered work events, but just are awful and taste like dirt when someone who thinks it's the '50s decides to boil them. I hadn't ever tried cooking them myself before, but it was surprisingly easy and I highly recommend it.
I started by slicing them in half. I drizzled (how's that for a pretending-I-know-how-to-cook word?) oil and soy sauce on a baking sheet and set them cut-side down, then drizzled a bit more on top. I baked them at, well, whatever I had the oven at for other things? Maybe 400? For about 20 minutes, periodically picking one up and seeing what the insides looked like. The outsides were a little dried out, so I added about a teaspoon of water, dash more of soy sauce, and microwaved them for about a minute to steam them a little. I also tossed some salt, ginger, and a pinch of sugar on them before microwaving.
