Artichokes Steamed in White Wine and Lemon

We haven't had fresh artichokes in years for some reason, but when I stopped by Trader Joe's this weekend, the artichokes jumped off the shelf at me. I thought this recipe looked good: artichokes steamed in a white wine, lemon, garlic and thyme broth... it was super easy and really good.

However, as we learned listening to Tim as he ate his artichoke: fresh artichokes are not for the lazy man. Tim complained, "This seems like a lot of effort." He also added "My arms hurt," which I am assuming is from doing push-ups, not lifting oh-so-heavy artichoke leaves from the lemon butter dip to his mouth... but you never know with Tim.
