Anginares a la Polita

Saturday 21 February
Another snowy day, but we had some good greenery set aside for just such a day: a box of baby artichokes, acquired last week at the Hyde Park Kroger's.  A vegetable meal was appealing after all the red meat we've been eating, so we went with Greek artichoke stew. 

It was pretty much as here, but used little whole red potatoes, some the size of marbles, we got from Findlay Market; dried dill, as there was no fresh; and lime, as there were no lemons. 
Okay, a non-canonical adaptation, but once you've traveled in Greece in the winter and had moussaka made of potatoes instead of eggplant, you know that the Greeks are practical about such things.
