Our great friend Sean is responsible for the title of this post. The full quote is: “Sweet Baby Jesus! Fire up the Weber! All hands on deck! There be MEAT lads! As far as a man can see!” and that’s really the way I feel right now. As though there is this endless supply of meat in our fridge.
Roasted Bagna Cauda Broccoli has all the good stuff: lemon, anchovies, garlic, butter, wine and almonds. I added parsley for fun, didn’t have white wine, and wasn’t in the mood for almonds (which is weird because I love almonds), but it still came out great. Half of my mom’s homegrown Meyer lemon went into the broccoli, and that made it extra-good on many levels. With the other half, I made a glass of lemonade, for the three of us to share.
