The Artichoke Affair

vegetables with rice

My sister is a cook out of necessity. That is, my mom would call or leave a note saying "Make lunch for your dad when he comes home." So what is there to make for one vegetarian for lunch? Being resourceful, she figured that it's best to combine all of my dad's favorites into one dish: olives, artichoke hearts, and mushrooms!

She called this The Artichoke Affair because, like me, she has a flare for the dramatics.

Chorizo and Egg Sandwiches

20100614-_MG_3505

Brendan sent me a link to a recipe for Charlotte Tolhurst's Egg Sandwich from Design*Sponge because he's crafty and he reads crafty blogs. Then he requested that either Helen or I make it for him. Why did I accept this request? There are several reasons:

1. I love eggs.
2. The ingredient list is super short.
3. The pictures on the blog are really pretty.
4. I want to volunteer before Helen does because this recipe is easy. I do not want to have Helen volunteer and then have to make a super hard/complicate dish later. :( I am super selfish.
5. The ingredients are cheap.
6. It's super easy to make.

Let's see how I did on my lazy/selfish adventure.

Lamb Burgers with Sun-Dried Tomato Aioli



So I guess if you've been following my posts, you'd probably think I only eat shrimp and lamb, which I guess is not entirely false. I present you with the most delicious burger ever! I definitely have to say that a lamb patty beats a beef patty a billion times over.
