Half-baked times fourPosted Friday, November 12, 2010, at 2:24 PM
For our T-G Thanksgiving meal, the company is providing the entree but there's a sign-up list for us to bring side dishes.
I had no idea what to bring yet, but I like to cook and I'm sure I'll bring something, so I wrote "TBA."
One of my smart-aleck co-workers, who has yet to be identified, wrote "twice-baked artichokes" out beside it.
Actually, twice-baked artichokes sound pretty good, if there is such a thing. I love steaming an artichoke and dipping the tender parts of the leaves in Italian dressing (or, even better, melted butter). But it doesn't sound like it would be a good potluck dish. Nobody wants a whole artichoke at a potluck; it would take up two-thirds of the plate.
Maybe TBA stands for Tepid Beans Again. Or Tinned Baby Anchovies. Or Turnips, Boiled Aggressively.
We won't know for sure until Thursday.
