I think I've had this before, very good! But I've never thought about doing it in the crockpot...great idea, thanks!

Yum! If I can find leeks I might make this for my baby group nest week.

Hmm. I have a confession.

I have no idea what an artichoke heart is. It's in a can, right?

Next time I'm at the grocery with my wife and kids, I'll make an effort to look for them. Then, I could hold my head high as I ask them, "Do you know what an artic heart looks like?"

Happy Thursday (and Friday, too).
