I'm not sure why people are so into eating Artichoke...But I have had many people tell me they love it and they have told me how to cook it, and what they like to dip it in. Here is the before it's cooked state...
Artichoke recipes and decided to steam it in water with lemon,bay leaf and garlic.The above photo is the steamed Artichoke. People told me of two things they like to dip it in, melted butter (now that is something I like!) or Mayo...
Artichokes are the flower of a Thistle plant....
And because I tried something new and healthy I had a good treat...Strawberry shortcake...YUM!
So what healthy food do you think I should try next? Have you tried Artichoke? What is your favorite way to eat it?

We as adults need to see that we also can be bullies. I know that there have been times that I have been unkind, and I have worked hard to think about how I treat others and if I become that unkind person I try to go back and make it right. There are also time where I have been treated unkindly and I have to decide to let it go. We all need to look around more and see how those around us are being treated. Do we stand up for those we know are being hurt or do we look the other way? Bullying doesn't just happen in schools, it happens to all ages, and if we think it doesn't then we are probably looking the other way.
As much as I like the Sherlock character if I could meet someone from this television series I would love to meet the person who made them...The mind that put together these TV series...This person I would think has to be pretty brilliant...The things that he puts into the Sherlock character are so cool.. I have told my husband I really like people with brilliant minds...I like to see how they see the world, because they see so much...
Here are a few other shows that I find have a bullying theme in them...And the wonderful thing of each is that the bullied person becomes the hero..That is what we need to teach our children who are bullied..Be who you are despite it all and you may just become the hero..The brilliant scientist..The celebrated writer..The greatest animator there ever was..The famous film maker...

The soles of my shoes are so worn out that there are holes in them...As I looked at my shoes I realized that I had become as worn out as my shoes...I was no longer feeling passionate about my job, I was not seeing what the next step in my job would be...And that is when I remembered my job in New Jersey...That was when I remembered all that I had learned when losing my job. That people don't have to stay in jobs, that when you no longer feel passion you can look to see what else is out there. I started to go to an employment center to have my resume worked on. If you want a new job, go to employment centers. If you live in Utah and are LDS you should go to their employment centers. There are so many free services for you. Even if you are not LDS you can go to them and get help and free services too. I found that I could get free computer classes if I needed them. I found that there were job fairs, and events that helped people to network. I had one on one help with my resume, and was given tips and tricks on how to apply for jobs online. Many people stay at a job because they feel they can't find anything better. But that is not the case, you can find things that are better.
