I had half a mind to be a jerk and reject it.
She hasn't tried to friend me (as of yet anyway). She showed up in the People You May Know column because my nephews (her sons) are all on my FB. They might think it strange if she's not on my page. If I do friend her, I'll probably hide my posts and activities from her.

I tried broccoli today, was not a fan.

I don't know why I keep entering these Nc giveaways, I never win! *sigh* maybe I'll win something this time.

Aaiiii, who do this guy think he is? More importantly, who does he think he's dealing with? He pushes me, I push back for equal consideration and treatment, come up with a plan that meets both of our needs, and he goes ballistic? Real professional.

Also: for why? Why the attitude? All I can guess is that he had no intention of paying, or paying in full, and now he's mad that I beat him to the punch, that I still have leverage. Well, I did so because I just had a feeling about this one. I just knew it. 20 years of this work and you develop a sense about people. I saw his tone and his interactions with L and I thought, this is a bad apple.

I wish this project hadn't started out the way it did. I'm usually more circumspect. I hope L makes good on her word — it was her wheedling that got me into this mess, because I trusted her. Now I'm dealing with a client from hell. I would have never signed up for working for him, had I had any inkling about him before.

ALWAYS 50% up front with new clients
ALWAYS a contract
ALWAYS

Except she wasn't a new client. Ugh. She better make good.

F*ck You. Pay Me.

I figured. Yeah, no good. I can't think of a single veg that is good simply steamed since often steamed vegetables get no love once they're steamed.
You're not allowed to discard broccoli because of this. Try again.

Yep. But even just quickly stir-fried broccoli with sliced garlic. Or sautéed with chili flakes and garlic (and anchovies).

Hey, I know quite well how vegetables can be both unpalatable and freaking delicious based simply on how they're treated.

Sounds good, spring. Hold back on some of the cheese, no cream of anything soup, and deliciousness is achieved!
A casserole is just a perverse, twisted version of a much more reserved gratin.

Saria, normally I bow to your greater culinary knowledge and drool over your recipes and suggestions, but may I just point out that "broccoli" is Italian for "unmitigated evil," and that the vegetable itself is actually lethally poisonous and should not be consumed under any circumstances?

This is the honest truth and the sooner the world realizes it, the sooner we can rid the world of this green menace. Small children everywhere will thank me.

Vile weed!

I'll accept it from you, fig jam. But not SIB after having it just once and steamed of all things. A pox on plain steamed vegetables!

I love broccoli. I would've beat you if you took broccoli away from 5 year old me. Some small children would hate you.

Some small children who have already succumbed to the neurotoxins attacking their brains.

I LOVE roasted broccoli. I'm drooling a little bit, just thinking about it... And I'm the kind of person who gags when given steamed broccoli. It almost ruined the vegetable for me, as a whole. Roasted broccoli, however... I could probably eat just that for dinner and be happy.
