chicken artichoke mushroom sauté

dr bob was working late with dr claes. dr stuff, you know.

ms_ani volunteered to do dinner solo. what a pleasant surprise this was. (The way the result turned out, not that she volunteered ...). The dr bob cooking team cookbook and recipe collection is pretty big. Mind boggling how many recipes there must be in just the cookbooks alone, not counting the box of all the compulsively (but selectively) collected rarely ever consulted newspaper food section clippings. And the multiple boxes of past issues of hardly read food magazines. One of the food mag cookbooks is Too Busy to Cook. Unfortunately we're Too Busy to Look, usually. This time ms_ani found the time. And what a great find. Who knows how many other fabulous recipes will go undiscovered in our remaining days.
