Here’s a question for you: I have several pounds (read: a BIG bag) of frozen broccoli in the freezer. It’s not very good frozen broccoli. It’s pretty gross to just eat it cooked. Is there any way to make it good? I can’t even really hide it in things because the flavor just over powers other things. Why is it that sometimes frozen broccoli is fine and other times it’s disgusting?
Pretty straight forward menu here this week. Salmon would be the only interesting item. We don’t eat much fish because it’s not a local meat but the kids kind of hate it (except tuna salad) so I want to serve it occasionally so they learn to like something besides beef and chicken. It’s high time I work on expanding their palates.
Oh wait, another question! Do any of you have a good rice pilaf recipe? Maybe we just don’t like pilafs but every time I try making one, they are just kind of bland. I’m probably grocery shopping on Thursday so if you have any recipes that might call for ingredients I need to buy, let me know before then. Thanks
