1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Soak the artichoke bottoms in cold water.
Saute the onions in the butter until tender. Set aside. In a small sauce pan, cook the pancetta in 1 tbs olive oil.
Remove the artichoke bottoms from the water and pat dry. Put a drop of oil in the center of each and stuff generously with the mixture. Place bottoms in an oven-proof casserole and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.. Drizzle with remaining olive oil and bake for 15 minutes.

Along with cleaning out the Christmas decorations, I thought a personal inventory was in order as well. While I've been fairly consistent with my efforts to exercise, using a combination of walking, yoga (on hold right now due to some vertigo issues), and strength training, I'm been more ambivalent about what I've been eating. As promised, you'll be seeing an emphasis on healthy eating on The Food of Love in upcoming days.
For those of you who've made a resolution to eat more healthfully and to exercise more faithfully in the New Year, you might be interested in a helpful site that I've resumed using. I have a bit of experience using different sites to journal my food and exercise, and I find that http://www.sparkpeople.com/ offers the best since it allows you both to focus on nutrition and exercise as well as offering lots of advice and motivation. If that isn't enough to "spark" your interest, it's absolutely FREE.
So, I just finished a Jillian Michael's power sculpting routine, I have my menu and shopping list made out, and I'll be walking the village streets later this afternoon. My hope is that there'll be less of a healthier me come spring. Want to join me?
