Lunch on May 6, 2011 - devoid of color but not of flavor

Today's lunch isn't very pretty.  Even though it lacks color there is definitely some flavor in all this bland.

I am serving brown rice and chicken (with some soy sauce glaze), watermelon, and the heart of a large and DELICIOUS artichoke.  I simply can't get enough artichokes these days, they keep getting better and better.  Strawberries however have been consistently bad no matter where I get them.  What gives?


  1. How do you cook your artichoke? They always intimidate me.

  2. I hear they're in bloom all over California - I was on the phone with a friend the other day who was like "I'm walking past a garden overfilling with artichokes."

    I want to know as well. I've never cooked an artichoke.

  3. I want an artichoke! I'll try to buy some this weekend. My strawberries have been subpar too.

    I'm anxiously awaiting cherry season.

  4. Thanks for all the comments! Since you asked I will post about artichokes shortly!
