Don't Try This At Home

4 to See on Netflix Now

Remember when the fall network TV schedule was an eagerly anticipated event?

All us folks out here in flyover country couldn't wait to see what the BIG 3 networks had to offer. If it wasn't on ABC, CBS or NBC it didn't exist. At least not in our house. 

Thank God those days are over.

1950's trash cans-480.jpgI'm just gonna put it out there 'merica. Network TV just plain SUCKS and it has for some time. I've seen the fall previews and there is not a single show worthy of DVR space here at Boomer Brief HQ. 

But, that's why God made Netflix. 

The streaming service has been hitting homeruns with its original programming and European series that kick network TV's ass. Like crime dramas that'll keep you on the edge of your seat?

Well, there are four streaming on Netflix that you have to watch. NOW.

Here's the Dish

Skillet Zucchini Parmesan

In Texas, we enjoy fresh zucchini year-round. So I'm all about finding new ways to prepare this green, cucumber-lookalike.

Here's one of our latest favorites. It's super simple because you need only seven ingredients. Actually, make that five - zucchini, tomato, Parmesan cheese, chives and olive oil - because the other two are salt and pepper. And they shouldn't even count!

Great for weeknights when you're short on time (like always!), this yummy, stovetop side or vegetarian main dish comes together in under half an hour. You just slice some zucchini and mix it with diced, fresh tomato and dried chives. Then sauté the medley in olive oil until the zucchini is tender crisp and has absorbed most of the tomato juice.

Then toss on some Parmesan cheese for an Italian-inspired treat. Anything but boring, it's a vegetable the whole family will adore.

We like this stovetop sensation with crusty bread and grilled chicken or fish. But it works well with just about any basic main dish.
