Friday, April 24th

Yeah... that stem...delectable....
Still didn't get enough Artichoke though. Trader Joe's to the rescue with their 'Artichoke and Hearts of Palm Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette' for lunch. Amazingly satisfying for such a seemingly small portion...
Gardein 'Seven Grain Crispy Tenders' with Heinz-57 and a baked Sweet Potato for dinner....
Choco Chews for dessert....
Dining out tomorrow. Should jazz things up around here. Bye for now.

Nice shot of the artichoke's backside ;) the stem is almost the best part. TJ's frozen artichoke hearts are worthwhile when fresh aren't available- defrosted and sauteed well with a bit of garlic and olive oil works
The few vegan prepared salads are good- well, the kale one needs to be mixed with the dressing and sit a few hours first.
Gorgeous sweet potato! I went thru a sweet potato and almond butter phase for a few months...
The choco chewies are a nice finish.

I want my warm sunny weather now! Its hard to brunch or bike outside when its 50 with crazy cold wind....

Yuuuum!!! That sweet potato looks so amazing!! I still need to try some of the TJs salads. They always look great but I always tell myself I'll just make it… and then I don't. I need to find these chews!

We don't really have trees in our backyard but maybe I'll take a peek for morels ;) I can't wait to have my own garden. And yes, pollen season is here and won't go away for me for 9 months. Gotta love being allergic to life!

I usually need a little More protein in my salads than it looks like the TJ one has but I am not you.
Wasn't even aware you could eat a choke stem.
Yea, amazing looking sweet potato. I haven't had one in a while since I'm trying to embrace springier foods, but they are always so wonderful.

Hey Now!!!!

Unknown, the stem is so great. Wish I could find those Artichokes with the footlong stems. You must see them back in CA. Yeah, it was freezing today. Saw people in winter coats and felt envious.

Sarah, I am sorry you are so allergic. It must be awful for you based on the sneezing and itchy eyes i have been experiencing this week. Thought you were already in Florida?

FF, more protein in a Salad is a good idea but I am just happy to eat a Salad at home that I didnt make. It seems like Sweet Potatoes are a spring food. They are always shown for Easter dinner etc.
