They had artichokes for 33 cents each at the grocery store.
33. cents. each.
I went and got 40 of them.
Artichokes for dinner all week. Big grey-green piles of leaves and petals heaped up on the table every night.
But pine nuts are still ~$10/lb.
So we went out and collected some of our own this year.
(Also, FYI, they explode like popcorn/firecrackers if you keep them roasting too long.)
