Artichoke season has arrived! And this 5 minute artichoke dipping sauce, like this lemon butter makes the experience so fun and delicious! And if you want something creamier, I got a second artichoke dipping sauce as well.
I played my cards right in teaching my kids to like foods that my husband doesn’t love. He is not picky, but he doesn’t loooooooooove the same foods I do. That’s okay. It means that I don’t feel bad about fixing some of those foods as long as the kids like it. too. Vive the sauerkraut!
Artichokes falls into the camp of things FishPapa likes, but wouldn’t probably go out of his way to buy or make. I don’t think he’s ever said, “Honey, I think it’s been awhile since we had artichokes.” But, my kids do!
So, when my oldest son requested artichokes recently, I had to say yes! I love them as much as he does.
I actually never had an artichoke until I met my husband. His Dutch friends, Sander and Vieke, lived on a mountain behind Santa Barbara. The night they invited us to dinner, I had my first tastes of red wine, steamed artichokes, and pasta carbonara. Lovely! It was a meal to remember!
