Now, baby artichokes are from another part of the plant, they are not the "younger" version.
I also purchased purple artichokes and long stem artichokes. :D I'll post a picture tomorrow me me holding the long stem variety like flowers (they are in fact flowers!)
I have come up with a plan on how to off set these problems of locating the vegetables I need for this project. I am going to network at the local farmers market. I am going to try and collect either business cards or names and phone numbers so that I can contact them when I need something. Hopefully they will be close enough so that this will work :D The question is, do I have the guts to do this?
It took some carful planning today to get the timing all right for this meal. I had to roast the potatoes first and then add boiled artichokes. Which meant I had to prepare them during the time it took to roast the potatoes AND still make the normal main dish... spaggetti with meat sauce. Too many carbs, but I did not think while making my menu this week that this would cause a problem. I'll do better next week.
Looking forward to tomorrow!
