My big fat Greek dinner

Yup, still alive. I’ve sat for the boards, taken care of some business, recovered appropriately, and returned to eating vegetables. It was touch and go and lots of Taco Bell there for a while. This meal was borne out a certain amount of laziness with equal parts craving and experimentation. It’s no secret that I adore all things artichoke and as summer is drawing to a quick close (I guess that happens when you spend a month straight indoors cuddling up to your textbooks) I needed to make quick use of the trappings of the season by combining seasonal produce with the almighty grill markings.

Here she is to tell you how you too can achieve dairy nirvana in just a few short minutes of prep time. Enjoy!
