Kale and a Tomato
Kale chips are awesome!
Try some. Wash and dry kale pieces (torn from the stems). I put mine in the salad spinner. Then drizzle a little olive oil and toss it around. Add a little salt. Just a little, or else it's too salty. (Thanks for that tip in yesterday's blog coments, Annette! You were right - I put too much on....not that it stopped me from eating them.) Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until the edges are browned. Then, eat. They are incredibly light and crispy and YUMMY! Paul was not at all intrigued and passed them by....
A Book Review:
The $64 Tomato: How One Man Nearly Lost His Sanity, Spent a Fortune, and Endured an Existential Crisis in the Quest for the Perfect Garden by William Alexander : Well, the title pretty much tells you about the book! This was an entertaining look at the trials and tribulations of gardening. A yarn shop friend lent this book to me after seeing some of my blog posts last summer about my own garden. This man's garden was much bigger (and included a little orchard too) but I could certainly relate to a lot of his troubles!
On to an exciting David Baldacci book - more on that when I'm done with it. More knitting coming soon too. I've got another shawl-on-the-brain thanks to the new KnitScene and my friend Janell.
