So I decided while staying true to my "trying to eat more vegetables/fruit" campaign that I would make some broccoli soup today. I saw this recipe in a random magazine and cut it out - basically pretending that I would make it some day. Well, it's some day. Let's give it a whirl.
Now, I have always loved raw broccoli - I just normally eat a little tree at a time. I have never actually chopped it up into pieces before. That was fun. Little rolling green balls all over my counter/sink/floor - you name it. When the mess was cleaned up I brought that sucker to a boil. So far so good. Until, while sitting in my recliner watching Sex & the City, the air filled with that all too familiar scent. It is currently wafting through my home like a raging inferno. I have a Christmas Cookie candle lit - NOT helping. Now I'm nauseous from the combo. My husband just came home and almost passed out at the door.
Whoops. Note to self - don't do this ever again.
AND THIS is yet another reason why popcorn and peanut m&ms make a better snack than vegetables.
