Oh, baby!

We're in the midst of some "wicked naahsty" summer heat and humidity, which means it's way too hot to be in la cucina. Luckily I had steamed some baby artichokes last weekend so they were all ready to grill. The pics above show the process before, during and after. Artichokes never look as pretty as when they are raw, and the Italians actually shave and eat the baby ones just like that, but I prefer them steamed with garlic and lemon. A drizzle of some olive oil and lemon and dinner is done.
