A Beautiful Day for a Walk

“an early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day” Henry David Thoreau

Today was the day that I was going to start walking again. I haven’t walked since I broke my foot. I planned on meeting my friend Deby. We were going to shop a bit and then on to walking. Well, we ended up going for a cup of coffee and talking for a couple of hours; needless to say we didn’t walk. While we were having coffee we talked about what I should make for dinner, a conversation I have with myself most days. Deby suggested a broccoli dish with garlic and olive oil. Now I am thinking about all the things I can do with broccoli. After we left, I went to my favorite store, Aldi, to pick up a few things and to see if they had anything fun to buy. I love going there to see all the new stuff they put out. My mother thinks I’m obsessed with the store. I picked up a few things, went home and started to cook. This is what I came up with.

Stefanie’s creation

  • 2 to 3 crowns of broccoli, chopped
  • handful of fresh parsley, chopped
  • garlic cloves, minced
  • garlic powder, salt, pepper, to taste
  • 1 can of black olives, minced
  • olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of red pepper spread, or to taste
  • 1 pound of quinoa pasta, any kind
  • parmesan cheese

Saute the olive oil, minced garlic, and seasoning over medium heat, add the broccoli, parsley, and olives and cook for a few minutes. Add the butter and red pepper spread, cook until the broccoli is tender. Serve over pasta with parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
