and then she snapped: is your refrigerator running? and also, artichokes.

is your refrigerator running? and also, artichokes.


Did I tell you that the night before I left for EVO our refrigerator leaked onto our hardwood floors in the kitchen? So we shut off the water to the fridge and have been without cold fridge water AND ICE* for 3 weeks. Well last week the part that was needed to fix the cracked water line arrived, and today was FINALLY our scheduled appointment for the repair people to come fix it. So now we have ice and cold water and all is well again in the world. Oh, except for the fact that our floor still looks like crap and will need to be refinished which will require us to be out of our home for 5 days at some point. #firstworldproblems

And so? Tonight we had artichokes. (Which has absolutely nothing to do with the refrigerator, or the floors, or really anything, except for the fact that we like artichokes). With mayonaise. What do you dip your artichokes in?



*It is quite difficult to drink iced coffee, or iced tea without the aforementioned ICE. Which is a problem.

  5. Glad that your fridge is all fixed. Yup, mine is working. :) Love your photo the artichokes look delicious. I used to dip artichokes in warm melted butter. I no longer eat butter so I eat them without dipping.

  6. We can never find whole, fresh artichokes around here. However, knowing my LOVE for vegan mayo, I'm certain that would be my condiment of choice.

    Glad you finally have your ice and water back. I drink a frap every morning. I wouldn't survive without ice!

  7. Oh my, I'm sorry about your fridge; what a pain! Great artichoke shot! I haven't had artichokes in awhile! My mom stuffs them with hamburg; so yummy! I've never heard of dipping them in mayo; that's different!

  9. While I love the garlic butter dip, a lower calorie version is reduced-fat mayo with powdered ranch dressing mixed in. The kids love it. I grew up in Minnesota and artichokes were an exotic treat, but now we live in the midst of artichoke fields and they're a staple of our diet . . .

  10. Someone broke my car down on Sunday. I have been stuck at home for a week. I know it has nothing to do with artichokes or fridge. Let's say I feel your pain.
    Oh and on pizza. Artichokes I mean.
