Amy and I went through the produce section at Big Y a few days ago, and I happened upon an artichoke and realized that I had no idea how to cook it! So I worked on it this morning.
I steamed it with some garlic, lemon juice, and a bay leaf, and then ate it with some melted butter.
You sort of eat it like edamame…scraping the stuff off with your teeth!
And there’s even a cool flower in the middle!!!
Other notable firsts:
* I had never rung the bell at Big Y announcing that you received excellent customer service! (I also let out a loud WHOOOO!!!! to really drive home the point.)
* I had never heard of an espresso blend called Colonel Grumpy’s Chapin. It made me giggle profusely. Almost as much as the word duty…..
* I had never registered a car at the DMV before!
