We love the Choke

This weekend is the Annual Castroville Artichoke Festival and going to this event is a sure way to remind Tina and me how much we love artichokes. Eating an artichoke seems like it's just an excuse to eat tasty sauces, but even without the dipping sauces, artichokes have an addictive mildly sweet flavor. At the festival, we ate deep fried artichokes as well as grilled artichokes and steamed artichokes. They also had artichoke cupcakes (which we heard were excellent) but were sold out buy the time we made it to the booth in the afternoon. While at the festival we bought a box of jumbo sized artichokes (12 for $18). Even though we had a bunch of artichokes at the festival, once we got home, I steamed two jumbo artichokes and we ate them with a mayonnaise, dijon mustard, and garlic powder sauce. Mmmm….
