Yummy Broccoli….seriously, this is actually good broccoli!

Guess what…I DO NOT LIKE BROCCOLI. I am not kidding. I really am not a fan. But guess who does randomly? My “I don’t like vegetables” husband. So, the other night when I asked him what side he wanted and he said broccoli, I had no choice! I had to figure out a way to make it taste good for me if he was willing to eat it, right?! I’m talking some serious vitamin C people!!

You’ll never believe it….but this recipe is SO GOOD….like French fries good….I’m not lying!!
