Stalking the wild broccoli (and giveaway winner)

2011 July 22

First, you sneak up on it (beware the ferocious feline).

Then, go in boldly with your weapon (bring a guide if necessary).

Stabilize the head as you work.

Victory!

Pass it around the tribe!

Nibble nibble.


 Thanks Mom for teaching me to love broccoli!

    Oh, my God, I don’t know if I’m more excited about winning or about that broccoli. We haven’t been able to find fresh broccoli here and and the bags of frozen stuff are, well, you know, blech. Drooooooool!
