Bok Choy, Baby! and other fabulous sides

I love this stuff, especially prepared this way. I think you'll like it too. Another good side dish is these chili roasted sweet potato wedges. And one more simple, really simple thing, but I am sure you already know it is... oven roasted broccoli. Cut up some broccoli crowns, toss with olive oil and kosher salt, roast in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or so and there you have it. My friend, Valentina makes a medley of vegetables this way (using sea salt) and it is so delicious. We found ourselves eating the broccoli like candy, so I usually just make the broccoli minus the other veggies, although equally delicious.

I've almost tried broccoli a lot lately. When I was pregnant, I craved it. But it would only get about as far as my nose. Then I'd gag and eat a cookie. I'm going to try it. I really am. Fred likes me to do it that way and add garlic slices.

Do broccoli and candy belong in the same sentence?

I think I could actually make that broccoli, that doesn't sound too hard. Yay!

I don't feel good about eating Bok Choy. I'm really worried about it. Are you sure it's good?

pineapple snow...do not fear the bok choy, it doesn't have e-coli or anything..the chinese eat it, therefore it must be good!

The chinese eat Duck feet. That ain't good...

I can't wait to try this- maybe I can finally get Stanton to eat broccoli.
