Earlier in May, in a post called vogue, soap & artichokes, I told you that I was doing experiments with artichokes in the kitchen and it seemed like many of you were interested. I have now posted the recipe for oven braised artichokes with garlic & thyme on my English food blog kitchen & aroma. The recipe is from Sylvie Shirazi, the author of the Gourmande in the Kitchen food blog. The artichokes were delicious.
It's a rainy day in Luxembourg so the weather is perfect for organising papers and things. I was saying to myself that I need to go furniture shopping to get my home office together. I need bookshelves and drawers because there is no need unpacking this stuff unless I have a place for it. I think my friend Ikea is the solution to my problem.
Did you see my Paris post yesterday? I was asking for some tips as I'm going there in the autumn so please leave a comment if you have any, or email them to me. When my hard drive crashed earlier this spring I lost almost all my Paris links so I'm eager to add some to my Paris folder. I had already made a rough plan with wonderful clichés (Eiffel tower, Musée d'Orsay, Café de Flore, Shakespeare bookshop), but my friend and I are open to other suggestions. It's not our intention to run around Paris with a crazy schedule but maybe some of your tips fit well into our plan as it looks now.
