How to Steam Artichoke

Cut little thorn tips off with scissors. Slice the top inch off. Cut off excess stem – leave an inch. Rinse in cold water. Put in microwave-proof dish with 1/4 in of water. Cover with lid. Microwave for 4 mins. The leaves should come off easily. pull off as close to the stem as possible. Dip in melted butter and use teeth to scrape off meat. Eat heart at the end.

 

Ham Roll Ups

Leave cream cheese out til it reaches room temperature. Beat in a bowl until smooth. Stir in drained olives and 1/3 cup of green onions. Spread over ham slices. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with the short side. Chill for at least 1 hour. Just before eating, cut into 1 in pieces.

 

Keep the remaining salad dressing mix on hand for next week.
