Bristling at Broccoli

Let me put my cards right on the table.

I have never been a fan of broccoli. I'm willing to eat it, but I prefer it doused with something like a Hollandaise sauce or stir-fried in an olive oil-curry mixture.

I guess that defeats the point if the goal is to eat broccoli because it's so healthy and rich in vitamins.

I'm reminded of the New Yorker cartoon from many decades ago. A mother urges her child to eat the broccoli on his plate. "It's broccoli, dear," she explains.

The boy's reply: "I say it's spinach, and I say the hell with it."

Ironically, spinach is a green veggie that I'm quite fond of.
