This Roasted Parmesan Broccoli is a yummy, easy veggie side dish!

I’m not sure I mentioned this but we’re livin’ large in Seattle this week.  B’s sister and her husband are in Israel leading a tour of the holy land for their church, and we were chosen to be the Personal Assistants to my fabulous niece for the week.  Score!  Yayy for us!

It’s so beautiful here!  So many pine trees, so many mountains… and so many Starbucks!??☕  We made a trip down to Pike Place Market yesterday while the baby girl was in school (btw she’s 16).  We took in a few sights, hit a few antique shops and, well, had a (1-day) belated celebration of National Margarita Day at El Borracho.?  I feel as though it is my duty & obligation to celebrate any and all food holidays – a food blogger’s gotta do what a food blogger’s gotta do.✌  Oh and of course there was the “original” Starbucks location… all in the name of food-related research.  It’s a small price to pay and I’m so good at it!!?
