I always consider artichokes a "fancy" vegetable. I think any of these pieces would make a rich addition to a kitchen or dining room. Lovely!

These are spectacular! Truly gourmet art!
Now I'm thinking of my grandfather from Italy, who made stuffed artichokes only for the adults at Sunday dinner. When gourmet fare was served, we kids were told that we wouldn't like it... hmmm..

Ooooh! Stuffed Artichokes! Now that is a recipe I want!

I grew up in Castroville, California, the Artichoke Capital of the World. We could buy grocery bags full of artichokes for just a few dollars. We would eat them with almost every meal!

Here in Texas, they cost over a dollar each. I do not eat them as often as I did as a kid. Obviously. Plus, my husband doesn't like them. However, my daughter did try one and liked it.

As soon as we have fully recovered from this darn Hurricane, I am buying a couple of artichokes!!!
