Himself: Worked too hard yesterday. For Movie Night he says “Fast and Furiously” wasn’t. We did watch “Company Men” all the way through.
Herself: Errands and groceries. It was a good day. Movies: We have never not watched a movie before, but he reminded me that it was only 98 cents. Company men was too to the depression side and not enough to the redemption side of the lives of the characters.
Reading: “Naughty in Nice,” by Rhys Bowen. Light and fun. Well crafted.
Balance: Having time to work on photos and writing too.
Barbara had throat cancer in the 1980’s, and they left her a hole in her throat to breathe through. She still sounds just like herself but now is a very quiet Barbara. In the veggie section, as I waved a head of broccoli, if that’s what they are called, telling her how great Thai broccoli was. On and on I went.
Finally as I wound down, Barbara’s faint voice was heard to say, “I don’t eat that.” I quickly apologized.
Maybe you don’t eat broccoli either. Me, I find it a delightful break from the veggie-with-entre things, but I confess I had to play with the original recipe to make it addictive for the two of us.
2 small heads of broccoli or 1 big head
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper or 2 good squirts of very hot red pepper sauce
1/2 cup water
Trim the broccoli to mostly the floweret’s. Pour a little olive oil in a frying pan that has a lid. Smash the garlic or run it through a garlic press into the oil. Heat up the pan and add the broccoli. Toss, add water, cover, turn down, and cook about 6 to 9 minutes….till done. The whole dish whips together in minutes. Serves 4.
