My freezer has bags of frozen broccoli (and corn, beans, asparagus, etc.) from last year's garden. I prepare a stir-fry about every week because I can't decide on which veggie to eat! I didn't find any tabasco sauce at Aldi yesterday, but I did find Thai sauce. I hesitated over it for a long time before putting it back on the shelf. Yes, I'm a chicken. I'll stick to soy sauce for my stir-frys.

Thanks Carl.  I'll look for those.

Idaho, you may have to splurge and buy the frozen broccoli flowerettes if you prefer not to deal with the hard skins.  They're usually a bit more pricey than the bags of chopped up flowerettes and stems.

I bought a large head of broccoli several days ago and have been eating broccoli soup the last 3 days.  Delicious and gets my bowls moving the way they should.  

I plan on buying more, but I hate the work they take to prepare.  Cutting and washing takes a long time, especially cutting the hard skin off the trunks.

I would buy cut-up frozen broccoli, but every brand I've tried, have too much of the hard skin, which I don't enjoy eating.

Tabasco always gets added to my macaroni/tuna salad.

Comment by Daniel W yesterday

I changed the broccoli apple salad linked previously to a cauliflower apple salad.  I also substituted walnuts for pecans, and dried cherries for dried cranberries.  It was OK but I liked the original version better.

Randy, the older I get, the more I love hot peppers.  I don't know why.  I mixed a teaspoon of hot sauce with the dressing for my last batch of potato salad.  That was great!  It is an acquired taste, I know.  There will be hot peppers again in the garden 2017.

We have lots of yard apple trees in my town where people just let the fruit rot.  It's sad.  Picking up citrus seems very exotic indeed.

Comment by Randall Smith yesterday
Tabasco isn't something I ever use, mostly because I've never been exposed to it. Going grocery shopping today and will look for it.
On my daily walks while in Florida, I made mental notes of where all the citrus trees were located. Simply asking home owners if they use their fruit or not, I can pick up bags of goodies, namely tangerines and kumquats, which I love, and many don't.
When I was in Corfu last year, we went through a kumquat "factory". That fruit (along with the ubiquitous grapes) is very common there.

I love my Tabasco as well, Daniel.  Eggs in the morning aren't the same without it.

Eating hot peppers can help you live longer.  Science daily.  "consumption of hot red chili peppers is associated with a 13 percent reduction in total mortality -- primarily in deaths due to heart disease or stroke"

I eat Sriracha every day, but only because I love the stuff.  My love affair with Tabasco started when I was sent to boot camp at Ft. Polk Louisiana.  The mess seargant provided Tabasco at every table.  Ever since then, some form of hot pepper goes on all of my potatoes, eggs, and a lot of other foods.
