ARTichoke



Berkeley Bowl West is a 'Foodie Paradise'. Today was no exception. We were on a mission to find artichokes. The Berkeley Bowl has so many artichoke choices. They had X-Large- to small, organic and even chokes made into dip. We chose a couple of larges and hiked to the checkout booth.


Home made mayonnaise sounded like a good idea. We have a bevy of eggs, a Meyer lemon tree, and a lot of energy. Mayo is not too hard to make. I started out with just a whisk. Ms. Goofy volunteered the idea of using her fancy 'Kitchenaid' hand mixer. After a minute of whisking I jumped on her suggestion. The mayonnaise creation was a breeze. One mayonnaise got a teaspoon of chipotle en adobo. Home made chipotle en adobo of course.


Artichokes are a sign of the beginning of Spring. We are heading to Marin for Asparagus as soon as I get off this darn computer. Maybe we will run into the Crankmeister and his beautiful Wife, the 'Angry One!'

I may have to get a few myself this weekend, but just for me. Zio won't eat them. Maybe if I grill them...

I've always been scared of artichokes, seem like a lot of work, but this looks great.

The Crankmeister was there a bit early, so sorry. I was in bed with the doggie and the crossword puzzle.

I LARVE artichokes.
