Cream of Artichoke Soup - Take four medium-sized fresh artichokes; wash, boil until tender, and remove the skins; chop the artichokes very fine, then mash them through a colander. Put two tablespoonfuls of butter into a saucepan; add one sliced onion, shake and stir without browning until the onion is soft and tender. Add a bay leaf. Moisten two tablespoonfuls of flour in a little cold milk, then add this to one quart of milk; strain into the saucepan with the butter and onion. Add the artichoke that has been pressed through a colander, and stir constantly until it reaches the boiling point. Strain through a fine sieve; add a teaspoonful of salt, a dash of red pepper, and serve.

At a funeral, enter the church quietly, and, unless you belong to the mourners, wait until they leave the church before you rise from your seat. Never attempt to speak to any of the afflicted family. However heartfelt your sympathy, it will not be welcome at that time.
