I admit, I do love roasted asparagus. However, there is just something decadent about artichokes. They are awesome steamed whole served with escargot in a white wine, butter and garlic sauce. You can peel the leaves off and dip them in the butter. Then, when you get to the heart. Man, Oh, Man...that is the Good.
Apparently, our readers prefer smelly urine.
Anywho, a new poll is up. Peppas. Sweet or Spicy? My youngest spawn told me once that I wasn't sweet, I'm spicy. LMAO. This is the same one who asked me in the checkout line of a grocery store why I wasn't on the cover of a magazine. He's a player, that one.
We picked peppers because Farmer Ted put on his chef hat today in an attempt to fight off the depression that has set in over yet another NASTY, cold, wet day. He was making me some vegetarian sauce (soy crumbles and earthy mushrooms - today's were woodears - to sub for meat) to add to a mix of whole grain rices and parmesan stuffed in a bell pepper. Yummy. We also roasted some poblanos to stuff with black beans and queso (which we decided would be even better with the addition of a cornbread stuffing). More Yummy.
Next. Rufus still has not had a bath. The mulch pile is still there. And, Cornholio has not made an appearance tonight. Yet. Ted is wearing his Rocky sweatshirt, so we'll see.
