Sometimes life gets in the way of our best laid plans, though, doesn't it?
Some of the craftiness must wait to be shown until after a certain upcoming baby shower. Some of the recipe trials, too. Just know that there has been lots of good cookin' and craftin' going on here in these parts. I wouldn't want you to think I've been laying around watching soaps and eating bon bons.
Here's one interesting recipe I tried recently and decided is a keeper. This one comes from Teresa Price, the administrator of www.ThinItToWinIt.info.
1 head broccoli
2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
2 to 3 Tablespoons olive oil
Cut up the broccoli into florets and make sure it is completely dry.
Place all the ingredients into a large Zip-loc bag and give it a good shake.
Line a baking sheet with foil and spread the broccoli out on the pan.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. The edges will be a bit toasty and browned.
Usually when I make spaghetti, I serve it with salad and garlic bread. For this meal I replaced the salad with this baked broccoli, and it was delicious.
Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables, and I was so glad to find yet another delicious way of preparing it. I would imagine you could make a similar recipe using a head of cauliflower.
