About Me

I am a teddy bear artist by profession. I also play rhythm guitar with a local bluegrass band on weekends that I am not off to teddy bear shows. I have a very funny papillon named PJ. He is 10 years old and he keeps me mobile by making me take him walking every day. I love antiquing and use many of my finds for my teddy bears. I am just starting to do mixed media artwork and collage. You can find some of my things my website:www.marthasbears.com

broccoli in parmesan cheese sauce

 I made this for Thanksgiving

2 pounds of broccoli (steam it in the microwave until just tender - set aside)
1 small onion (minced) I don't use the onion - onion and I don't get along
6 tblsp butter -- 4 tblsp flour -- 2 Cups milk -- 1/2 tsp salt - pepper to taste  -- 1 Cup parmesan cheese -- 1/2 C bread crumbs.

cook the onion in 4 tbsp of the butter until tender - stir in the flour  -- add the milk gradually  and cook until thickened stirring constantly.  Add the salt, pepper and parmesan -- stir until cheese melts.  Pour 1/2 of the sauce into a  greased  or cooking sprayed baking dish.  arrange the broccoli - pour the rest of the sauce over the top, dot with the remaining butter and sprinkle with bread crumbs.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 min
