More ways to use broccoli

Confession: I bought one of those three-pound bags of pre-chopped broccoli at CostCo, hence my sudden obsession with using it up quickly. I know from past experience that the broccoli doesn't keep well past about 3 days.

This recipe for Broccoli with Garlic Sauce is delicious fresh and also several hours later; it was good enough that none of it survived to become leftovers. The recipe is supposed to be "diet" but we couldn't tell the difference!

New recipe: broccoli parmesan fritters

I've been bad about blogging while we've been traveling to various family reunions... here's a recipe that makes me so glad I nibbled out of the pan, because they are delicious when fresh but not nearly as good after keeping hot in a warm oven.

I also think that they had a bit too much broccoli in them... the fritters were falling apart!

Ten on Tuesday: 10 favorite TV shows from childhood

We didn't have a TV for much of my childhood, so this list of shows is going to make me look a bit younger than I really am. (Hah!)

1) 3-2-1 Contact was really the only show I was allowed to watch on a regular basis.
2) CHiPs was an occasional treat... and oh, the crush I had on Erik Estrada!
3) Nova was often family viewing. I know these three shows were the only things I watched prior to 4th grade, because my teacher laughed at me in 4th grade when on the of the get-to-know-you games was "What are you favorite TV shows" and these first three were what I listed.
4) Bugs Bunny and Friends
5) Dungeons and Dragons

Honestly, I cannot remember any other shows I watched regularly prior to high school. Then we added in

6) Beverly Hills 90210
7) Miami Vice
8) Quantum Leap
9) Star Trek: The Next Generation

and as a grown-up, I've watched and loved
10) Monty Python's Flying Circus and Black Adder, which were ON in my childhood but I wasn't allowed to watch them then.

this is my 365 post, and I have nothing to say except that this is a sad indicator of how far I've fallen from my goal of posting every day.
