The Stages of Santa

Our little Declan had his first meeting with Santa last week.  We knew it would take some time to warm up to him.

Stage 1: DOUBT
STAGE 2: FLEE
STAGE 3: FEAR
STAGE 4: ACCEPTANCE…kind of

Nothing like traumatizing your youngest with a little Christmas cheer.  
To continue with the abuse, why not just take them home and make them eat broccoli.  
Here’s how I like to make it:

Roasted Broccoli
3 Tb Olive Oil
2 Tb Chopped Garlic
1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp Mustard Powder
2 Tb Grated Parmesan Cheese
3 c Broccoli Florets
In a large bowl, whisk together first 7 ingredients.
Add broccoli and toss so all pieces are covered in oil.
Spread broccoli in a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil.
Bake for 15 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients 
Preheat Oven to 400F
