movie night food...for the grown ups...

movie night used to consist of

pizza, popcorn, soda and some sweet

treats...but now that the kids are gone

we take turns picking grown up treats!

one of our favorite movie night feasts:

 artichokes, artisan bread

and a good bottle of wine!

on Saturday night as i plated "chokes"

and prepared to serve them,

the colors caught my i thought i would

try out my new camera in the kitchen!

we usually dip the leaves and immerse the hearts

in butter...

we also have a couple favorite dips...

here are

the recipes for your enjoyment!

Curry Mayonnaise
1 c mayo
2 tsp curry powder
2 tsp butter
Melt butter in a small pan. Add curry powder.
Bubble gently for a minute or two over low heat
 to eliminate any bitterness from the curry powder.
 Cool and add to mayo.

  Pesto Mayonnaise
1 c mayo
3 Tbsp pesto sauce
mix thoroughly and adjust to taste


{with love}
