As you know we dyed Easter Eggs! Mur-Man and I spent some time yesterday de-shelling the eggs. (WOMS--don't let the hard boiled eggs go to waste!) And now it was time to make some egg-salad! Ethne and I BOTH LOVE TWO THINGS...DEVILED EGGS AND EGG SALAD!
I put Mur-Man again to work and he helped me chop the eggs (with my help). DELICIOUS!
My egg salad recipe is VERY EASY. Basically I mix and taste as I go. This batch included: Miracle Whip, fat free half and half, mustard, and sugar. I served this on buns (however I could eat this literally right out of the bowl). Apparently Ethne tried a new deviled egg recipe that included bacon and cheese! WHAT!?! I KNOW! Recipe coming soon...we promise!
Also, for dinner Steve and I decided to try making artichokes. This is a first for us. We learned as we went, so why not share with you WOMS! Pretty tasty and pretty easy overall!
|Trim the end off of your Artichoke.|
|I then took a kitchen scissor and cut all the tips |
(one is trimmed and one is not in the photo)
|You can then cook/steam your Artichoke. We have a steamer pot that worked great.|
However, you can also boil your Artichoke. Steam/cook until a knife goes through the
wide stem very easily. Our Artichokes took just over 20 minutes.
|Ready to eat!|
|You then peel and eat as you go. You can dip the Artichoke leaves in melted butter, |
lemon, or you can even eat them plain.
|As you eat the leaves, you only eat the white fleshy part of the Artichoke|
(scraping your teeth along the leaf as you go)
|This is the Artichoke center (or heart) You peel away the pedals and |
inside you find the heart of the Artichoke. For some this is the most
delicious part of the Artichoke.
