Pork Cutlet and First Artichoke From the Garden! In June!

I harvested two artichokes. Before cooking I didn't remove enough outer petals so it wasn't quite fully cooked in the centre or maybe they weren't quite ready to pick. It was still good but I'm beginning to suspect it's the garlic butter we like so much!

Mitchell's pork cutlets again. Fried with plenty of olive and canola oil. This time there was just a little oil left in the pan and one cutlet stuck in one spot. Another teaspoon or two of oil would have been perfect. Too much oil makes them greasy so it's a fine line to tread. 

Mashed potatoes had just salt, butter and milk. Never use an electric mixer on mashed potatoes, it turns them into unpalatable sticky paste.

To finish off, a salad of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, celery and apple dressed with olive oil, salt, mixed pepper and lemon juice.

Fern finished eating before me, that means it was really good.
