That’s usually what happens with artichokes for us. What happened?

:mog: I googled them and they seemed to be something that needed a lot of activity to "remove bitterness" and "improve texture" and I resolved, in that instant, never to bother.

After washing them, setting a pan of acidulated water on, de-leafing, peeling and de-stringing several stalks I realised that by the end I would end up with approx 3 teaspoons of vegetation which I would then bake with cream and - waste - really nice cheese only to be sorely disappointed and hungry at the end. So I decided to cut out a lot of waiting, electricity usage and rage by simply chucking it straight into the garden waste bin. :teacher:

Monk and I were laughing at my being excited all week quickly transforming into such a cavalier attitude to food waste. I did fleetingly consider putting some unpeeled stalks into a glass of water to see if it rooted so I could have it as a garden plant but I now hate cardoons so I didn't bother. :mog:

:lol: A wise plan. They sound like a massive faff and the sort of thing that maybe should only be eaten in a wartime emergency.

I was blinded by cream and cheese and my crusty bread and salad plans. I'm so glad I decided upon binning at the stage I did bin because the devastation after 40 mins of baking would have been too much to bear.

It’s always best not to waste lovely cream and cheese.

Psb with chilli, anchovy spaghetti
Goat's porky udon (bumped from previous week or two)
Korean chicken and sweet potato with rice
Chicken biryani
Creamy dijon mushrooms on brioche toast
Cauliflower-macaroni cheese
Chicken kiev, mash and peas
Braised broad beans on ciabatta, grilled oozing cheese
Roast something

I've got mushrooms, cauliflower, leeks to base meals around so I need to think about these.

This is the list, some may be eaten, some may get carried forward, again. I need room in the freezer (lasagne and gnocchi are from the freezer)

Udon stir fry thing. Asian turkey balls with the udon
Lemon chicken
Feta pasta (L)
Lasagne
Gnocchi
Frittata (L)
Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either, just fuck off and leave me alone.
