Have you ever tried a new recipe, and been really confused?
I wasn’t sure what to blog about this week, because I have a lot of stuff going on at once, and some of it I want to wait before I announce publicly! But I was chatting with someone about how I tried a new recipe.. and then hilariously started eating it wrong… and we laughed so hard she said “this has to go on your blog”.
So here’s the deal. I love spinach & artichoke dip. I’ve ordered it at restaurants, had it at other people’s homes.. but I’ve never made it myself. Well, in my pursuit of eating healthy, I found a recipe for Roasted Artichokes with Lemon & Garlic. Doesn’t that sound amazing?! I’ve never had artichoke on it’s own, but I love it in dip form, so why wouldn’t I like it whole?! So I read the recipe, got the ingredients.. and made it happen. I was so excited.. it smelled and looked amazing. It came out of the oven, I let it cool off, peeled off a leaf and popped it in my mouth.
About 5-10 seconds of chewing and I realized “hmm.. this isn’t right.”. (Cue the artichoke aficionados’ laughter :p ) So I read through the blog post that accompanied the recipe and quickly learned the correct way to eat an artichoke. Apparently that blogger had her own funny experience eating artichokes for the first time too.. LOL.
Well, when you eat it right, the recipe really is as delicious as it sounds!
Sorry for the quick (and late!) blog post this week.. but I’ll have another post in a few days! 😉
If you have any funny and/or embarrassing food stories.. I’d love to hear them.. Make me feel better about my artichoke mishap! 😛
