Wonderful, another item to put on my "foods I really hate to even think about" along with regular broccoli. I won't even talk to the little lady for two days after she eats broccoli. yuk, I say again with vigor, YUK>

There seems to be an abundance of super veg. growing this year. I bought a head of cauliflower that was huge.


I'm sure there are other blog ladies that would love to know where you got huge head

Of cauliflower.

It's spinach and the hell with it.

[deeply geezer reference]

We're gonna need a bigger casserole dish and more cheese. oldfatguy, broccoli is very good for you and I make a wonderful broccoli casserole. If you would like the recipe for the little lady just let me know.

nc: "it's good for you" is not a real strong selling point. my wife take fish oil tablets and eats flax seed and wheat germ and so forth because "it's good" for her. some folks fast, some folks self-flagellate. some folks eat flax seed. me, i've decided to give all forms of asceticism. that's just the kind of sacrifice i'm willing to make in order to improve myself.

hate broccoli. and i'm a geezer and get that spinach ref. har.

EGOMSIK, I agree, good for me does not mean it is good. NC, wife already has too many receipies for broccoli and more than too many receipies for baked chicken which by law should always be fried. On top of that she does not like and will not fix fried okra. It is a wonder I don't starve to death. May have to change handle to old skinny guy.

Ha! Thanks Lairbo. I thought I was the only one who remembered that Dennis the Menace panel.

And I agree - broccoli / spinach / cauliflower......

Broccoli is actually not bad, assuming you cook it properly. Blanch and then stir-fry it. And make sure not too long. But I find cauliflower easier to work with.

See, I happen to LOVE all them good fer ya veggies. Broccoli, spinach, brussel sprouts, cauliflower - when are they gonna come up with the "super flatulance resistor" ????
Brussel sprouts steamed, then sauteed with olive oil, coarse salt, coarse pepper, then at the last few minutes, a sprinkling of parmesan cheese ? Heaven.

Til I go to bed. >:-(

Actually, it wasn't Dennis the Menace, but a classic New Yorker cartoon by Carl Rose, published in 1928.

"It's broccoli, dear." - "I say it's spinach, and I say the hell with it."
