When you create and design a lot it can be so easy to get stuck in a rut. You constantly revisit old faithful patterns and projects, and from time to time those can get boring and monotonous, but they don’t have to be. Sometimes that same ole pattern just needs to be looked at in a slightly different way to give it a whole new life and make it interesting again. This blog post over in BurdaStyle is the perfect example of taking a simple pattern and getting a little creative with it. Each piece in the image below was created using the same patterns, the ladies just changed it up to suit their style and needs.

I am a broccoli and cheese girl all the way, but unfortunately thanks to this diet I am 8 days away from being able to have cheese, so I figured it was time to try something new. I found this recipe for Roasted Broccoli on Amateur Gourmet and decided to make it HCG Diet friendly.
Head of broccoli with the trees chopped off.
1 crushed melba toast, or a handful of bread crumbs for you non-diet people
Spray butter (0 calories 0 fat), or EVOO or Pam for non-diet people
Preheat oven to 425.
Place all dry ingredients in a plastic baggie. Drop the broccoli in and shake until coated.
Arrange the broccoli on a greased cookie sheet. (Greased with spray butter, EVOO or Pam)
Cook for 20-25 minutes crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned.
When I made this I had Red Lobster’s Fried Broccoli in mind,a nd this wasn’t exactly the same, but it was similar and delicious.
