This Sauteed Broccoli With Garlic And Butter Recipe Is What I Need

Growing up, I never had a problem eating my vegetables. Also, I got whooping, I guess you can say as a kid I was a sweet little angel.

My parents had it easy for me, I would like to think that, at least. The point I am trying to make is that I always ate my vegetables.

I used to see shows all the time when the kids refuse to eat their vegetables and would even go as far as throwing their plates on the floor.

I always thought that was crazy, and I am glad I never duplicated that behavior because my parents do not play that.

As a wise person said before, a smart person learns from their mistakes and a wise person learns from the mistakes of others.

Furthermore, lord knows that I did not want to make a mistake that would have ended up with a belt against my rear-end.

Also, based on my observation, the main vegetable that kids hated the most was broccoli. Maybe parents should make this garlic butter broccoli recipe, that will have their kids eat their veggies.

Although I never had a problem eating vegetables, I comprehend why some kids may not like them. Vegetables by themselves can be bland, and nobody wants to eat bland food.

Lucky, I grew up in a household that uses seasoning. If I didn’t, I probably would like vegetables either.

That is why I am quick to make this sauteed broccoli with garlic and butter recipe whenever I want to eat broccoli.
