Comfort Food

It started raining this afternoon as I was driving back from town. I felt like I needed to make something "Cozy" for dinner to chase the weather, and decided to make a variation of "Tuna Noodle" using a can of Turkey (didn't have any tuna) with some peas for color and a little variation in texture. Pretty yummy! Since 'd already put tonight's dinner in the oven before I left, I'll have it for dinner tomorrow when I come back from the studio.
I like the way the octagonal bowl looks with the mound of curly pasta in it! The bowl just came out of the kiln yesterday, so I'm not wasting any time putting it to use, am I? Good size, too... just right for two people.

YAAY, Veggies!

The picture is a bit blurry because I was anxious to eat the "Artichoke That Ate Manhattan"! It was aboout the size of a softball - sitting on one of my 10" dinner plates, you can see how big it is! (No, silly, not YOU sitting on the dinner plate!) It was quite wonderful to have all the artichoke I could eat at one sitting. There was more for dinner, but I opted out on the chicken and fries. Just the big "Choke" was fine.
