"It [playing Wimbledon] has crossed my mind -- I won't lie to you. Nothing against Nadal who is a tremendous athlete, but that sort of [baseline] game, I'd be licking my chops to come in [to net] and use that grass to your advantage."
--Pete Sampras talking to ESPN

|Recipe of the Month
This is a great filling tennis food that everyone loves! Obviously for tennis, you will bring it warm and it will be served room temp. or the temp of the day. Even people that don't like artichokes will like this one. You've probably eaten this at a match but wasn't sure of the recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1/4 cup butter
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained & chopped
1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 loaf French bread
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I prefer sharp)
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.
Add garlic and sesame seeds.
Saute until lightly browned.
Remove from heat and stir in artichoke, monterey jack, parmesan and sour cream.
Cut bread in half lengthwise.
Scoop out center of each piece, leaving a 1 inch shell.
Add approximately 1/2 of the removed bread pieces to the artichoke mixture.
Stir to blend.
Spoon artichoke mixture into french bread shells and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
Place on baking sheet and cover with foil.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Remove foil and bake 5 minutes more.
Cool slightly and cut into slices.
