My Artichoke Post

This past weekend was such GOOD EATS! Friday night’s crawfish boil was sooooooooooooo GOOD. We are going to try and do that every year from now on. Then on saturday my roomie made her yummy london broil. She also introduced me to the wonderful world of ARTICHOKES! I think up until then my only experience with artichokes was the infamous spinach and artichoke dip or the occasional pizza with artichokes topping. I don’t think my mom ever made us eat artichokes when I was growing up. Anyways, my roomie taught us how to eat a whole artichoke from stripping the leaves and sucking on the ends to scraping off the “choke”. She had a wonderful lemon and garlic butter dip that went perfectly with the artichokes as well. I’m drooling just remembering! Anyways, I found that Simply Recipes has a great tutorial on cooking and eating an artichoke, complete with pictures. And then I discovered this yummy looking recipe for Fried Baby Artichokes. I think Trader Joes might sell baby artichokes all packaged and ready to go! That would be great since I am the ultimate lazy cook. :) Anyways, click the recipe link to see the picture in all of its glory. The full sized one will make you drool!

*Just saw that Simply Recipes has bought and cooked with those baby artichokes from TJs!! I really want to get some next time I’m there.
