The other night, we had a new vegetable: Broccoli Raab or Rapini. It is not actually related to Broccoli, but that's not what I wanted to share. When I told my family the name of the mystery vegetable, which is pronounced Broccoli Rob, they immediately nicknamed the new green Broccoli BOB. At first some of them were tempted not to like it, but they had so much fun with the silliness of the name that they went round the table having Broccoli Bob do various feats of derring-do on the way to his imminent demise in their mouths. It was pretty funny, and I'm sure I'll never be able to call it anything but Broccoli BOB for the rest of my life.
