Do you eat artichokes?

I am trying new vegetables all the time. but i am intrigued by artichokes. i have never had then before. If you eat them how do you prepare them? fresh or canned or bottled. any ideas would be great.

Today has been one of those days that seem to go on forever. The kids generally go to bed 7;30 and i was looking at the clock at 6pm waiting for some quiet time. lol

so i put up the bouncy castle and they went nuts for an hour on it, They love that thing. I got it in the spring from a special sale walmart had in ontario, I got mysister to send it down. it barely made it under the weight capacity Canada Post has. i pull it out as a treat and use it for birthday parties. anyway stressul times call for inflatable measures. I am happy to say we all made it to bedtime happy campers;)

Dh came home and said the veggie bouquet is a huge success and everyone loved it. i am glad i never know what to send to those things. So now we have a winner. yay!

What are your favorite things to send to a potluck.?

Hmmm, can't say I've ever cooked artichokes. Let me know if you find a good recipe.

I looked at all the Walmart's in my area for one of those bouncy castle deals. No luck for me - it would have been great for the bday parties.

i got the dodge and dive one. i was lucky my sister was willing to look for it for me. all told it cost me 175.00 for it taxes and the shipping. plus i gave her some to cover her gas and efort. it was a big hit at the birthday party we just had. i bet they will have another super sale soon.
