dinner

I'm thinking artichokes for dinner...

They are one of favorite things about summer. I cut off the stem and place them in boiling water for about an hour. Depending on your stove, you might need to check the water and add more. Just ask my dad, nothing smells worse than burnt artichoke in the kitchen, not to mention the haze they put on your pots. To double check if they are cooked, I gently take a leaf between a knife and fork. It it comes off easily you are ready to enjoy. I like mine dipped in a little butter. How do you like your artichokes?
