This broccoli is delicious :)
Brussel Sprouts, but the flavors are changed slightly to match better with the broccoli.
Recipe adapted from Ina Garten.
First, cut one medium head of broccoli into 2 inch strips.
Toss them on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet (yea, easy clean-up) with some olive oil (about 1 Tablespoon) and Kosher salt (1 tsp or more). Then slice 2 garlic cloves and toss them on the baking sheet, too.
Then... and this is where it gets good... zest 1/2 of a lemon (I actually recommend leaving the lemon whole for the zesting procedure, but you only want zest from 1/2 of it). Sprinkle the lemon zest and about 1 tsp of fresh lemon juice on the broccoli... then add about 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese.
Oh, and what was I saying about the baby not liking bananas? Apparently, if you leave the peel on, he thinks they are quite fun :)
Too much healthiness for you lately? Don't worry - Sal's strawberries are in season, and I'm working on perfecting my strawberry pie before I share with all of you :)
AND there will be an adorable birthday cake on this post this weekend! Chocolate... with chocolate covered strawberries... Yes, someone really cute is turning ONE!
