I bought these artichokes as a snack for the two of us to enjoy and bring in the valentiney lovin early!  It was rainy, cold, gloomy and it only called for a day of staying in sweats and warm fuzzy socks. Being in California, I don't get to take advantage of the cold, blue light so I took some photos of course! :)
Happy Valentine's Day Eve!
...And for those of you who don't know how to cook an artichoke, here's a little help!

1. Snip the tip of each leaf, and then cut the tip of the entire artichoke to remove all of the spikey parts.
2. Fill up a large pot with a few inches of water, add a bay leaf, lemon slices, and a few cloves of garlic.
3. Rinse off the artichokes in cold water.
4. Insert a steaming rack and add in the artichokes.
5. Bring to boil and then reduce heat to simmer.  Cook for 30-45 minutes.
6. Enjoy with dip or melted butter!

I love the lighting on those artichokes. I should take more advantage of the cold blue light since it's like that for six months of the year in Van.
