Ernie's Artichoke Dip

1 can of artichoke hearts, the size of a Campbell's soup can, get the
1/2 cup more or less mayonnaise, you can cut or substitute with non-fat
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, the sprinkle kind is fine
a clove or two of garlic, be careful here

Smoosh all of this together, put in an appropriate sized crock or small
serving bowl. If you have one of those miniature crock pots, this is a
chance to use it. You may serve this as smooshed but the flavors marry
better if you heat it in oven/microwave/toaster oven/crock pot until
it's kind of bubbly. Serve with wheat thins or your favorite crackers.
