Meyer Lemon Broccoli

June 27, 2012

It’s the last week in June, which means this is our last fresh fruits and veggie post of the month. We know how delicious broccoli can be, but if you have a picky eater on your hands it may be difficult to get them to even take a bite of the “dreaded broccoli”. We are sure with this recipe even the pickiest children will be asking for seconds. So put a new spin on this plain side dish at dinner this week.
