Indiana Peggy, I heard you took a bad tumble (putting it mildly?!) about two weeks ago. I hope you're seeing improvement daily and were able to have a joyful Christmas, despite being laid up. I saw your broccoli recipe in another post. Made me think of one I'd found: roast broc/caul at 400-450 - drizzle w/ a bit of olive oil, turn over after abt 5 min., put on a bit more oil if desired, sprinkle (I did so liberally!) w/ Parm and finish roasting. I could not believe how simple and delicious it was. (One of these days I'll start putting recipes in my RB so can just post a link.) To your getting stronger daily ---

Emeralds, thanks for your kind wishes. I am getting better every day and doing a few things now without help. I have never been in such a position, of being the person to have to ask for help. It is hard to do. I think this experience will make me be a more compassionate caregiver in the future. I understand you are not feeling so well yourself, but it sounds as though you are being smart about your food choices. I hope you too continue to improve. Peggy

I'll write it out and put my changes after. The differences make this one easier! Called Oven-Roasted Broccoli with Parmesan 1 head broc, cut in lge florets, stalks peeled, 1/2 t Kosher salt, 1/4 t pepper, 1 t olive oil, 1 t Parm Preheat oven to 400 and coat a rimmed baking sheet w/ nonstick spray, lightly steam broc (which I'm pretty sure I didn't do, just washed and dried), then on b sheet toss broc, s&p, oil. Dust w/ Parm and toss once more. Bake 15 min. I had an old stove when I'd been making it, don't know if that's why I changed the baking part. I drizzled on oil and s (I don't like p), roasted abt 5 min, flipped broc over, drizzled a bit more oil, sprinkled on "fresh" Parm (I used more than 1 t!) and roasted abt 5 min more. As your recipe says, the broc was amazing! So simple. I wish I could tell you more exactly what I did, but I've not made it for at least 1 1/2 yrs. Now have new stove and hope to make it soon. Are you on the buzz often? What I could do is give a shout-out to you, and when I know you're around, tell you what I did (just don't know what'll happen w/ new stove). I know my posts tend to be long (trying to change), but if you just write out the recipe's steps, you'll see it actually isn't v long! If you try a recipe, let me know what you think.

Thanks, Peggy. How hard being in that "helpless" position, especially if you're always the one everyone goes to. When I've been feeling so miserable recently, I remember about you and realize how much worse off I could be (nothing on me is broken and I'm quite mobile!). I've only had a broken wrist bone in 1st grade, and the only bad thing was scratchy penmanship. But!, I was a novelty due to my cast, and classmates wanted to (literally) walk me around the playground - Jan., deep snow)! I love hearing your good energy and sense you'll be even that much better a caregiver.

Thanks, emeralds. I am saving the broccoli recipe to my recipe box. I am usually on the buzz in the early morning. Then, I take my 4 year old granddaughter to preschool M-TH. This week she is on vacation. I hope you feel better soon.
