Lots of people make fun of Twitter, but I just found another reason I like to tweet!
The other night when I woke up at 2:00am, I reached for my Blackberry, which is my habit when I wake up in the night. After making sure I didn’t have messages from any of my kids I checked my email and twitter… Donald Miller (you know, the author of A Million Miles in a Thousand Years & Blue Like Jazz) had tweeted that he had eaten the best broccoli of his life! And he included a link! Don’t judge me but I was wide awake and went to the link, which is HERE.
The next day, I tried it! YUM!
Best Broccoli of Your Life!
Preheat oven to 425*
*2 Bunches Broccoli
*Fresh grated Parmesan Cheese-app. 1/3 cup
Cut broccoli into big florets, they must be dried THOROUGHLY!
Put broccoli on a foil covered cookie sheet. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. (about 4-5 Tablespoons olive oil)
Add 4 garlic cloves (peeled and sliced)-toss with the broccoli
Roast in the over for 20-25 minutes, until crisp and tender and some of the florets are browned.
Take out of oven and zest a lemon over the broccoli, squeeze the lemon juice over the broccoli and add 1.5 Tablespoons more olive oil and 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
Thank you twitter! Thank you Donald Miller! And thank you Amateur Gourmet !
