And sometimes I eat them with applesauce on the side. Like I do my pork chops.
That’s right. I roast my broccoli.
Except the batshit crazy part of me was seasoning them this last time and threw a large amount of salt into one section of the pan. Not a good idea.
That’s the part of me I like to blame when fingers are cut or food is burnt. That part of me shouldn’t be allowed to have sharp objects. or be out in public.
I would imagine this would be good if you threw in some more veggies, or maybe even some cannelini beans? or a fresh ear of corn. I need to try that.
And since today is my last day of summer, I give you my summer songs. The first, my summer anthem of 2010:
Dog Days are Over, by the one and only Florence + the Machine, who I can say, puts on one hell of a concert. And can go from insane powerhouse voice to light polite British girl in the blink of an eye.
And the song I’ve been playing on repeat whilst cooking all summer long:
Go Outside by The Cults. Who I have not seen in concert. But I’m sure they’re delightful.
1 lb ground turkey
1 red bell pepper, diced
2, 8oz cans tomato sauce
1 t ground mustard
1 t onion powder
1/2 t garlic powder
1 T Worcestershire sauce
In a lightly oiled pan, break up the meat and begin to cook, after a couple minutes throw in the bell pepper and cook until the meats browned and the pepper is softened.
Add the rest of the ingredients. and cook for a couple of min longer to combine the flavors.
Serve on toasted wheat or sesame hamburger buns.
A few heads of broccoli, chopped into florets
a couple T of olive oil
and a sprinkle of s&p
Toss this all on a baking sheet and roast at 425 for 10-12 min. It’s gonna turn brown, maybe even black, but that means even more flavor. So embrace it.
