Anyways, last night we landed on some bone in pork loin, homemade applesauce, and bacon cabbage reheated in an iron skillet. And a weight watchers lemon cream pie - (I've altered it some, so maybe I'll post that on a rainy day.) A last minute addition to up the veggies was 3 artichokes. They were a game changer.
Anyways, after our trip through the check out with 3 piles - yours, mine, and sharing the cost for dinner - we headed back to my apt to get cooking. The artichoke dip, a complete last minute brain dump of what we should dip artichokes in when we both kind of abhor mayo, I decided to doctor the heck out of it and made one hell of a dip. I'll do my best to recall the approximate measurements. But I would just read through for ideas and generate your own proportions and mix of flavors.
3 steamed artichokes ready for eating.
