Broccoli Lover

I hope you won’t be shocked at my saying that I love broccoli. Yes, you heard right. I do so love to eat broccoli. Whether sauteed in oyster sauce with beef or served fresh by itself from the microwave, broccoli is my favorite fun tasty vegetable.

Yesterday, I bought a head of broccoli. Today, I sliced it up, washed the stems and flowers, and stewed them in a pot with butter and garlic. But woe, oh woe, I overcooked it, and the result was mushy broccoli: not quite as fun or tasty as the fun tasty vegetable I love.

But I ate it anyway, with roast lemongrass chicken and rice. What a yummy lunch.
