Throw Back Thursday ~ Artichokes ~ Ovamit Campaigns for Trump ~ Dale Yellin ~ Linguini

Good 41º clear sunny morning. I think we hit 85º yesterday.
Throw Back Thursday....
1969 Deputy Jerry Maxwell, Avalon, Catalina Island...

Yesterday was slow and slower. I received a shipment of artichoke bottoms I ordered from Amazon.

Gave UPS Dave one of the cans, as he is an artichoke virgin! LOL. Never had an artichoke. I was going to send him a video (youtube) of how to cook and eat artichokes, but all of the videos are too long and pretty boring. Here is Ocean Mist's site on how to do all ...
With the bottoms I like to stuff them or cut them up and add to any number of dishes or salads.
Look, Obama (Ovamit) campaigns for Donald Trump!!! Really.

September 15th
National Linguini Day

Linguine or linguini is a form of pasta - like fettuccine and trenette, but elliptical in section rather than flat. It is about 4 millimeters in width, which is wider than spaghetti but not as wide as fettuccine. The name linguine means "little tongues" in Italian.
