I love artichokes.  I went to the local market and they were 3 for $5.  Done and done.

Sitting in a lemony, garlic water bath, I sprinkled some extra virgin olive oil on them and sprinkled them with garlic, salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon.  They’ll steam for about 45-50 minutes.  I’ll make a lemon vinaigrette to dip them in and also melted butter for the ones who like to keep it simple.

These will served alongside a pot roast that’s been in the slow cooker for almost 8 hours, some french bread with salted butter, baked sweet potatoes and one more vegetable side dish that I haven’t decided on yet.  Happy day off dinner for all.
