Whole Roasted Artichokes
What do you do when you have a chunk of free time and too many things to fill it with? I tend to get flustered and restless, then I try to do three things at once which results in none of them getting done and exacerbates the problem.
Sometimes exercise helps and sometimes it doesn’t, sometimes making a list and prioritizing a feasible amount of things to accomplish will help. Other times you need to spend some time doing things you enjoy. For some people it’s crafting or shopping, for me it’s cooking.
Something simple, something that will make you feel warm inside, something that doesn’t require a bunch of dishes and a trip to the grocery store. Artichoke hearts, when done right can be as satisfying as a juicy steak hot off the grill. Artichokes are a great “slow me down
dish. Pulling apart the artichoke leaf by leaf, dunking it in melted butter and finally getting to the best part is like medicine. So pop these in the oven, sit your butt down with your favorite music and prepare to relax.
