changes: adding cream cheese to the honey chipotle to make it saucier. Garlic salt went all on the broccoli and went with .25 tsp salt and a pinch of pepper for the balls. Removed the butter.

notes: honey chipotle stood up with the addition of cream cheese and wasn't overpowering. Nice and saucy. The side was better seasoned with all the garlic salt and was simple and tender.
