Valentines broccoli

For Valentines day, I gave my wife a pack of broccoli plants which I planted in our vegetable garden yesterday. Now, that might not seem very romantic; but, you have to understand that I really do not like broccoli - while she loves broccoli. By giving her broccoli plants, I was signaling to her that I am willing to eat broccoli with her, even though I do not like it.

OK, I confess, I gave her some other things too. But, the broccoli is the most heartfelt.

She pointed out that homegrown vegetables taste better - and I'm thinking "oh goody - more of that good ol broccoli flavor that I love so much." Anybody got some good broccoli recipes to share? Ya know, something that might kinda mast some of that broccoli flavor a bit?

Ooh I do! I'll email it to you. With fresh broccoli it is amazing, and the taste of the broccoli is almost entirely covered.

I always like a little bit of broccoli with my cheese sauce... :)

Actually I like broccoli uncooked - in a salad, for example - as soon as you cook it - it's got to be disguised in some sauce to mask the flavor.

You are such a romantic!

My dad hates broccoli, too.:)

Steamed is really god. (And, no, I do not mean eat mad broccoli. LOL.) With cheese sauce is good, too. And, in a baked pot pie.
