artichokes for dinner

by Michelle on May 4, 2008


I think I could eat artichokes every day of my life. This was tonight’s dinner–along with some tater tots. 😀

Well, the sun never did decide to show itself today so I didn’t take any knitting-related pictures (thus the picture of my dinner instead). However, I did finish the Twisted Sky Socks! They’re awesome and I love them. I have hope that the sun will shine enough tomorrow to get a decent picture.

Tomorrow is my mom’s birthday, and I have no gift for her because I have been completely uninspired. I do have yarn + pattern for a shawl for her, but haven’t started it yet. It would be nice if I could come up with *something* before we take her out to lunch tomorrow…but I may have to settle for, “I’m working on something awesome for you!” (which means I really need to get it on the needles so I’m not also lying…haha).

The yarn is awesome, Cherry Tree Hill Merino Lace in the color Green Mountain Madness (picture here). I also think the pattern I chose will be an enjoyable knit, so why haven’t I started it yet?

I think…I’m intimidated by having to wind that humongous hank of yarn into a ball.

So, maybe that’s what I’ll spend the rest of the evening doing: winding yarn. I have the lace for Mom’s shawl and a hank of sock yarn that also needs winding. (I finished one pair, time to start another, right?)

o, i was just craving artichokes. do you eat them with lemon and butter? I guess my uncle eats them with olive oil and lemon. Oh, I love artichokes.

I usually steam them with a little olive oil and lemon in the water, but we eat them with mayonnaise. I’ll eat artichokes almost no matter what you do to them, though: on pizza, in pasta, in salads…YUM. 😀

I almost bought artichokes the other night, but they didn’t feel very firm. 🙁 We usually eat ours with mayo too, even as a kid. We love artichokes of all kinds here.

Costco! In artichoke season, you can buy a bag of 4 HUGE artichokes for a really good price (I don’t actually know what we paid for them, but I know it’s really hard to find the size and quality of the Costco artichokes at any local store). I love this time of year!
