I hate Broccoli.


Last night was not a good night. 

I had a very, very busy day at work; while driving home in the pouring rain, I had to deal with a lot of stupid drivers on the road; and as soon as I got home, I was ambushed with all these questions about dinner. This didn't sit well with me, so I told my boyfriend that I quit from making dinners and went to have a shower.

I honestly didn't expect him to make dinner, but was very appreciative of his efforts... I was appreciative until he put broccoli into the Tikki Masala sauce! I hate broccoli; I have never liked it and really don't plan to like it anytime soon. To find these green bits floating in my dinner only made my evening worse and threw me into a funk. 

We've been together for almost 6 years, so he knows I don't like it. He claims that the reason I bought it was not for him, but for us to eat. Ha ha, I don't think so! He can think that all he wants, but its so far from the truth. I barely touched my dinner last night because I did not want to eat these green UFOs that were in my food. 

When I woke up this morning, I had a horrible headache (which I still have), and I had a stomach ache all morning/afternoon. He claims I need to start eating more broccoli and is currently searching for all these new recipes. While he is searching for recipes, I am trying to convince him I am allergic to this green vegetable. So far he has shot down everything I have found. I have a feeling I am going to loose this battle...!

  2. This is too funny. I completely can relate to having a bad day and this clearly was just the cherry on the top of your day. I also do not like broccoli so I understand how you feel!

  4. This really made me laugh! I'm such a picky eater (like...wont touch veggies or fruit) so my boyfriend is ALWAYS nagging me. I feel the pain.

    1. Glad to hear I made you laugh, and that I am not the only one. I am very picky with what fruit and veggies I like!

  5. Oh boy we've all had those days, but the best part is late we can just laugh about about it. I actually really like broccoli but I do things to it, you can add bacon and cheese and butter and roast them in the oven. I'm not sure what you don't like about them, but my little brother HATES the tops, but if we thinly slice the stalks he loves it. I have a really great pasta recipe that you'd probably love because it doesn't even look like it would have broccoli in it, it actually just ends up looking like a pesto pasta (you pulse the broccoli in a food processor with water and then fry it in a frying pan until the water evapourates and crisps up). With garlic and all the usual flavour suspects, it's delish. New follower btw, haha. Happy Friday!

    1. I hate everything about it (taste/smell). If I can disguise it in my food, like you suggested, then perhaps I will give broccoli another chance! lol I may have to give that pasta sauce a try!

      Thanks for stopping by and following, I am following you now as well!

  7. That's fine if broccoli hates me. In fact, I'm more than fine with it because since I despise its existence I care not for what it may think :) xxx
