I wish the English language had words to explain this picture but I just can’t seem to find them. Maybe it is words to describe me it is lacking. My wife says the word I am looking for is “Country!” She says she never knew she would end up marrying a California man who was so COUNTRY. I’m not sure what she’s trying to tell me. I think what she’s really means is, “I Love You!”
Last month we took an adventure along the coast and I could not help but returning to a place which held such great childhood memories for me. If you’re ever near Castroville California you have to stop by The Giant Artichoke and pick up a dozen or two of their amazing deep fried artichoke hearts! I have been enjoying them for as many years as I can remember. My family use to stop in every time we drove to Salinas. They are some of the best things on the planet! Tender hearts of artichoke battered and fried to a golden brown perfection, dipped in a home made dipping sauce! It can’t get much better than that. If you get the chance to stop by, make sure you share it with someone you love like I did. Even if you cant talk her in to getting her picture take in front of a giant artichoke with you.
