Can you believe summertime is almost over 

It has gone so fast! Where does time go? I know they say that the older you get, the fast time goes, but geeeezz. If it goes any faster I will end up going back in time!! (Am I showing my age with the Back to the Future refrence?)

One of the things I used to do with my kids during the summer was movie night. We all loved it. We would plan out the munchies we were going to have, grab some drinks, a few DVDs, and pile up in the living room for a mini movie marathon.

We have had the wackiest summer in Western Washington so far. Our normal gorgeous days of the mid 80's with blue skies, or even the crazy 90's we had last year, are nothing but memories. Today it is hazy gray and in the mid 60's 

I want to go to the beach and stick my toes in the sand  I want to kick back with a book in the sun  But instead I am stuck inside watching binge watching old episodes of Project Runway #dontjudge

So instead of thinking about some cool summer cocktails, or a new recipe for the grill, I want to sit in my yoga pants on the sofa and eat lots and lots of munchies.

24 Broccoli Recipes Your Family Will Love

24 Broccoli Recipes Your Family Will Love from www.bobbiskozykitchen.com

Broccoli.

One of those veggies that people either really really love, or really really hate.

Growing up, I was in the latter category. I thought it was horrible, like eating a bush 

If my Mom tried to put it on my plate, I was trying to feed it to the dog when she wasn't looking.

The dog wouldn't eat it either. Which just proved my point!

Now, as an adult, and someone that really tries to eat healthier, I have learned to love it.....a LOT! But, not everyone in my family has jumped on the bandwagon like I have.

So, that spurred me on to turn to my blogger friends to help me put together a list of recipes that is sure to make even the pickiest eater give broccoli a chance. 

We have made it through the majority of this list and I can tell you that everyone has given the recipes a hearty 2 thumbs up!
