Cleaning your paint brushes – in the car! Plus Si’s artichoke dip.

You can buy all the designated brush cleaning apparatus in the world but there’s nothing better than recyling /re-using your own. Costco’s giant jar of artichokes has made us some delicious late night dips over the summer – now to make use of the empty jar too, a complete success with no spillage! Filling it with turps at 30mph got me shouted at by Mr M though šŸ˜‰

FYI – Artichoke dip:

8 or so artichoke hearts popped in the food processor

Add in a few twists of salt, black pepper and chilli seeds; a glug of olive oil; a splash of white wine vinegar; 1/2 a tub of mascarpone cheese.

Whizz up in the processor. If it’s a bit dry & sticky add some juice from the Costco jar. If it then gets too sloppy, stick some more mascarpone in. This is not an exact science šŸ˜‰

Eat on crackers, toasted pitta etc. Or on celery if you are really healthy.
