The bigger-than-a-softball-artichokes are back.  Oh yum.

They’re big enough to feed a small army or emerging nation.  They’re big.  And oh, so good!

I brought them home with no real plan.  Victor took one look and said “leave them to me”.  I did.  I’m glad I did!

He trimmed them up and made a stuffing of fresh bread crumbs, black olives, garlic, Italian seasoning, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.  After stuffing them, he liberally drizzled olive oil on them and then steamed them for an hour.

Mashed sweet potatoes with a drizzle of maple syrup, and steaks on the grill.

The perfect meal.

Needless to say, there was actually more food on those plates than we could eat.  We both ate half of the steaks, half of the sweet potatoes, and all of the artichokes.

Leftovers are my friend…..
