Day 75 – March 16th

Artichoke Heart Day

I was able to pick up a real live (actually quite dead) artichoke, now that I’m back in Vancouver, at the nearby Whole Foods

She was a beauty.

I sliced it in half and drizzled it generously with olive oil & lemon. I placed it on a baking sheet and into a preheated 375 degree oven.

It really started to smoke up the apartment after about 20 minutes so I took it out.

I drizzled it with some Balsamic Reduction, sprinkled some salt and pepper and had a few bites.

It looked great…

…but was way under cooked.

I would estimate it needed about double the time.  Lesson learned…sorta.

I really didn’t feel compelled to wipe the reduction off and re roast so I just took some nice photos and called it quits on Artichoke Heart Day. They aren’t my favourite & I’m jet lagged af.
