I usually serve one large artichoke, or two small ones, per person, with individual dishes of melted garlic-lemon-butter. With a mess of baked chicken wings. And each person has his/her own leaf/bone bowl, too.

One of my all-time favorite meals.

That sounds dee-lish! I used a roasted garlic/shallot white wine braising liquid. And I added a little of the lemon water I was holding the veggies in, too. So I guess you could say it's garlic-lemon-butter-like!

Thanks to everyone for the ideas and input. And thanks for the compliment about the photo, fireweaver.

Love 'em, need 'em, gotta have 'em.
What? Are you teasing me?
My favorite!!! Them and asparagus.
Here they're about $2.00 but stink most of the year. You have to look 1st. If they look dried out - forget it. If they're heavy for their size, they're in my basket.
I'm with aunt dot. I steam them in asidulated water (lemon's been added, as well as cutting off the thorns and squeezing lemon on) There's my meal for the night. They're so rich I haven't found what would be good with them. Maybe a light white fish. Anyone have a good idea????
I serve with a mini warmer of salted butter & lemon.
Your picture looks beautiful, I'm drewling.
Eat and be merry!

I keep trying to make artichokes work at home, but I'm not sure I have the patience. plus, at $2.50 a pop, we need $10 worth of artichokes to make enough for 2 of us! Maybe someone can convince me to stick with it. I must be making it too difficult.
Stuff them...then you only need one per person.

Great advice! I'll do that next time (Although I'd probably stuff with crabmeat which will make them even more expensive!)

3 for $1? That's VERY cheap. Insanely cheap. Super insanely cheap for NYC.

That is cheap. I just picked some up on Sunday at Albertson's, $1 each, cheapest I've seen in a while. Nice size and heavy too. I splurged a little!
