Brocolli, By Any Other Name

Posted by MANDI at 4:15 PM
This conversation just took place, amongst homework and afternoon tea, at the kitchen bench and I'm still giggling so thought I'd share...
Offspring #1: What's for dinner?
Me: Broccolini Tart. And maybe braised cabbage and some vegies.
#1: Yum! You've made Broccolini Tart before haven't you? (And at my nod, yes) I remember, it was really good.
Offspring #2: Yuk!!  I don't like that!! Wait, what's Broccolini?
Me: You do like it...
#1: You like Brocollini! It's just like Broccoli.
Pause while #2 thinks about it...
#1: But with an INI at the end.
#2: Oh! That! Yeah, I like that.
Sometimes they leave me giggling like a crazy woman and they have no idea why. Then they look at each other and wander off together as if agreeing to leave the crazy woman alone for a while.

Oh haven´t had Broccoli for quite a while! What is a Tart?

Do you do other people's parties?

Hey Iris, sorry I forgot to come back and answer you question. A tart is basically an open pie, ie a pie without a lid. So it has the pastry base and the filling - can be sweet (like jam tart) or savoury.

LOL Ron - I can barely mananage dinner for my own lot at the moment!
