Brussels Sprouts Delight with Herb Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

It's the weekend and I can't help but want something extra satisfying. I whipped up a fresh cocktail and got the weekend off to a good start. Fresh herbs and onions were calling me, I picked a few, chopped them up and spread them over some fingerling potatoes with olive oil and seasoning.  Served with Brussels sprouts, garbanzo beans and almond slivers. The house still smells amazing!
