Shredded zucchini and summer squash sauteed in garlic, olive oil and salt with basil with whole wheat thin spaghetti.

I'll probably throw together some kind of salad

I'd like a glass of wine but I'm lazy so I might settle for the Bud light in the fridge.

White rice, sautéed zucchini, pork marinated in vinegar and something with a twist of lime, steak marinated the same, and some chicken.

I will dessert on sliced watermelon.

All thanks to my RM's family.

And maybe later a little piece of brownie.

spring,
Here's an old family recipe. It's how we have been cooking artichokes for generations.

artichokes
lots of chopped garlic
lots of chopped parsley
olive oil
salt, pepper

Cut of the stem so the bottom is flat. Cut off the top of the artichoke so it's also flat (just a half inch or so). We don't trim off the tips of each leaf or dig out the choke in the center of the artichoke so it's not labor intensive and no need for gloves.
Pound the top of the artichoke against the edge of the counter or sink so it opens up. Rinse with cold water. Put a bunch of chopped garlic down inside the leaves, set the artichokes in a deep pan. Fill each artichoke with some olive oil, add parsley, salt, pepper. Fill pan with water til the artichokes fill up and start to float (try to fit them tightly enough in the pan so they don't tip over, but not too tight). Peel off the outer layer of any stems you might have, cut into short sections, and throw in the pan.

Cover, bring to a boil then turn down to a simmer and cook for a couple hours, till very tender and the leaves start to fall off.

To eat, pull off the leaves and scrape the 'meat' off with your teeth (some people use their top teeth, some their bottom teeth. I'm a bottom teeth girl.) Work your way to the center. As you get closer to the middle the leaves will be so tender you can eat them whole.

When you've eaten all the leaves you will see the artichoke heart with the fuzzy choke on top. Take a spoon and scoop out the choke (it will come out in one hunk) and eat that delicious heart!

Hey, nobody said this artichoke business was easy! hahaha.

Now, so as not to totally side track this thread, here's what I had for supper - lasagna andcheesecake, (both low carb) and yes a Pop Tart (not low carb. haha.)

Is this the one you mentioned to me? If so, let me know how it is and what you get!
That's the one! I'll be sure to update
Well, we had a change of plans and ended up at a Mediterranean place in the East Bay. I'm still determined to try Sol Food though!

Cold sliced seared lamb with mint, ranch and spinach in a folded tortilla. Sort of pita-ish because they're low carb tortillas (yuck!) so thicker. I tell ya, worst part of Mom's diabetes is not getting to have really good fresh tortillas! Also an artichoke.

A hodge podge of leftovers; some pizza and some roasted potatoes. What I really want is a damn good hamburger and fries.

Yakiniku. Yum, cow tongue. I'm really going to miss this. Even more incentive to revisit Korea. Wonder if they have yakinku in the airport
