Stuffed Artichokes

47

I had a bunch of leftovers sitting around and decided this time I would blend them together for a truly unique artichoke stuffing. Hubby was not home so I used the ingredients he disliked; capers, feta and goat cheese.

1
1 large artichoke, cooked with choke removed
1 package Olive Garden croutons (the size that comes with the take out salad)
1 ounce feta cheese
1 ounce goat cheese
1 teaspoon capers
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon butter, melted
Cut the stem off the artichoke and discard any of the little leaves. Cut the top off by about a half inch and using kitchen shears, snip the pointy edges of the leaves off. Steam the artichoke in microwave...

Stewed Okra and Tomatoes is a classic Southern dish! Flavored with bacon, onion, garlic and cider vinegar, you know these vegetables are bound to be good. Serve garden fresh okra and tomatoes during the summer months, or use canned and frozen ingredients in the off-season. Paired with a side of cornbread, this is a simple and affordable dish to enjoy year-round!
