CA is on the brink of metering private wells too. A lot of the people I know are running around punching un permitted wells all over their property for when that day comes.
That's the spirit!! To heck with everyone else, I'm going to get mine even if the rest of you have to suffer for it.
Might be time to bring this to the front again. Here's a good side dish for when bland vegetables begin to nauseate you!
Broccoli with Creamy Parmesan Sauce
1 pound broccoli
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup nonfat milk, divided
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pinch of ground white pepper
Pinch of ground nutmeg (optional)
Trim 1/2 inch off broccoli stalks; remove the tough outer layer with a vegetable peeler. Cut the broccoli lengthwise so the florets attached to the long stalks are 1 to 2 inches wide. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a Dutch oven fitted with a steamer basket. Steam the broccoli until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk flour and 1/4 cup milk in a small bowl until smooth. Heat the remaining 3/4 cup milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat until steaming. Whisk in the flour mixture; cook, whisking, until thickened, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat; add cheese, salt, pepper and nutmeg (if using). Drizzle over the broccoli. Serve warm.

I started this thread a long time ago and people have periodically added to it. It is old enough that some of the recipes are early WW and some are the new points system while some just have calorie counts etc. There are a variety of recipes here all of which have been tried and tested.
