A recipe for Artichoke and Sun Dried Tomato Goat Cheese Pasta dish. It was 90 degrees yesterday. I am convinced that not having air conditioning is a survival of the fittest situation, and if you do not have one, you die. Mix 90 degree weather with a leather couch, and a hot computer on your lap and you have a mess. My gross legs stuck to my couch to the point where I knew getting up would be painful. Also, I think I have done permanent skin damage to the part of my legs where my laptop sits. I do not think they will ever look the same. EVER. Other than that, this weekend was fun. I spent time thinking how my favorite actor as a child was either super creepy or super hilarious. I went to a party where too many people were wearing what appeared to be mini versions of top hats (is this a new trend? It should stop immediately.) I could be mistaken, it was dark. I also found out how much prosecco is too much. Overall a great weekend. How was yours?

Now, on to food. Artichokes are one of my favorites. They are soooo pretty. Like a nice mid century design, and a great color. We have three artichoke recipes this week. All of which are super gorgeous. This Artichoke Sun-Dried Tomato & Goat Cheese Pasta recipe is great because its a lighter pasta dish. A dish where you don’t have to un button the top of your pants when you are done.

    To make this even more simple for a week-day meal, I bet canned artichokes would work just as well, right?

    This sounds absolutely delicious.
