By George, I Think I've Got It!

It has been a while now. I have tried and tried to make a Stuffed Artichoke that came close to what my mom use to make. They were a meal by themselves. In all my attempts the stuffing was not perfect. Until tonight. Delightful. Delicious. Every bite brought back wonderful memories. I used the same recipe that I have been using for a while but tonight I nailed it. The only thing I did different was maybe I used more bread. Maybe more olive oil. Or perhaps it was the Hail Mary's as I was mixing the stuffing. I figured that wouldn't hurt.

Oh that leftover Pot Roast, I turned it into a Shepherd Pie. Chris liked it. I was only focused on that artichoke!

And the recipe for those Artichokes can be found here.

And while you are at the Food Blogga check out the Rice Pie recipe. Amazing!

I do not usually post fund raisers on my blog but this one is close to home. The wife of Jim Babjak, the lead guitarist in our favorite band, The Smithereens, was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. The cancer has spread to her lungs and liver and is now considered Stage 4. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with ongoing bills and to continue Betty's treatment and care. Click here for more information and to make a donation.  If you can not make a donation please keep Jim and Betty in your prayers. Thank you.
