Uh oh. I still haven't found my USB cable. Whatever have I done with it? Why can't I find one in my office??
So, let's have a post about our favorite ways to enjoy broccoli! I'll start - I like to eat it. I also like to feed the leaves to my cat, Zelda.
Actually, that's already boring me. Instead I'll confess a secret about me and broccoli: whenever I buy it, whether it's from the farmer's market or grocery store, I immediately peek through the florets a couple times checking for my nemesis, the broccoli bug. I've even posted on the PPK about my woes.
It's worse than with greens because there are more places for them to hide! I know vegetables are for animals and insects to enjoy, but the thought of my broccoli having fleas and me accidentally eating them drives me nutty. No matter how many times I wash the infested broccoli and try to clean it in a cold water bath, rinse, repeat, smack it against the wall, the bugs remain! I can't bring myself to boil the vegetable with the bugs.
When I bought the broccoli above at the Saturday farmer's market from the Artichoke folks for $1 a head and did my check, I seriously thanked the woman selling it for the bug-less-ness with a smile.
And the rant is over.
This weekend I'm on the lookout for purple brococli.
And a delicious way to enjoy broccoli-
